birth control but late period
im on birth control, but im late for my period. im a little worried. the last pack of bc i went through, as soon as i got to the last row of pills my period started. this time its late. is that right? i know that birth control is supposed to help regulate your period so i dont understand why i would be late. help.

Have you been taking the pills at nearly the same time every single day?  Have you been sexually active?

I'm asking because you need to rule out the possiblity of pregnancy.  If you missed any pills at all and you've been sexually active then you need to take a hpt.

Good luck!

My AF never starts as soon as I start the last row of pills, it usually starts on Tuesday. How late are you? Is there a chance of pregnancy? A lot of things can cause a delay, but pregnancy does need to be ruled out. I would wait a few more days if AF is due this week, if you are a week late, I would take a HPT.

When I was on the pill my period never started until 2 days after I stopped the last active pill. If ur period doesnt start soon I def take a HPT b4 starting a new pack.

If your AF is late every month then you may want to discuss it with a Dr.  Since this was the first time just wait and see how the following months go.  You may need a different BC.

Hi, i never do this sort of thing but i'm really scared.

Now i am taking allese and i've been on it for three month now. I took my last cycle of pills on saturday and now its monday. So far every time i've had my period exacly the next day. Not this time. I recently also have had i believe infections with my uterus. I am going for tests this week but i'm nervous it will prevent me from reproducing. My breast hurt and the doctor says i have sisistic breasts(sorry for the spelling) and my stomach wont stop fluttering. I feel like i have a heart in my stomache and i'm on stage because i feel  nervous and butterfly's in stomache. Please help me. I know he won't leave but i have no money for pregnancy test.

i'm on birth control and i usually start my period by the second to last blue pill before the green ones at the end of the pack (i'm on Ortho tricyclin lo). I'm now on the first green one today and i haven't started yet. What does this mean?

I usually get my period on the 4th day after starting the green pills. I've been on birth control for almost 2 years now and im late. I recently started taking Prozac but it said it shouldnt affect it. My boyfriend and I have had sex without condoms which we always do and i've never been late before. Any ideas?

I've been on ortho tricylclen lo for about four months. i took all the pills regularly this month, and i'm on my second green pill and haven't started my period. Last time i started on the first green pill. I recently got some big personal news that has definitly stressed me out, i haven't been able to eat normally for a few days. Could the stress delay my period?

It usually comes on the 3rd or 4th day in the last week. and today its the 5th day and it still hasnt come. Since i know my period wouldnt come for a few days, we had sex and he came in me when i was on the last week of pills in the pack. Can i get pregnant when i am on the "period week or free week" of my pack? PLEASE HELP! Thanks!

I just recently went to the doctors for a bc refill and they took a pregnancy test and I wasn't preg. I have taken my bc on time everyday and now its the fourth day off my bc and no period. Do I continue taking my bc on the following Sunday if the preg test comes out negative? Or do I wait for my period to come?

Okay I have seriously bad irrational fears of becoming pregnant, ever since my boyfriend and I started becoming sexually active. I'm ALWAYS worried and I think I need to go see a therapist about it because I don't think someone should be so scared all the time, bout anyway here's my question

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex 3 days after my last period ended,  because of the circumstances, the sex literally lasted for 5 minutes and he didn't ejaculate. I am on birth control for irregular periods and I've only been on it for 2 months but I take it at EXACTLY the same time every day and I have never missed one. Also, the day after we had sex, I had some kind of stomach bug. I took my pill same time that day, but I threw up like 2 hours after I took it. Please, someone tell me if I should be worried because I just finished my white active pills and last time my period started on the second sugar pill. I'm on the second sugar pill today but I have not started bleeding yet. Is it my stress that's making it late?
