i stopped takin microlite birth control pills two months ago. i got one perios (periods) which i think was a true period, and now over one month later i havent got another. i have always had protected sex and am way too scared to take a pregnancy test! is it normal that periods are irregular when stoppin the pill? please help as i am so worried.
It could take upto 3 months for your cycle to get back ontrack but since you've already gotten a period and now missed one, it's a cause for concern.
If you don't mind me asking, why did you stop takin the pill if you continued tohave sex?
I stopped taking the pill in late November 06 because I wanted to get pregnant. I was told that it would take like 6 months. Well, I never got a regular period and by December 24th I was pregnant and gave birth to my DD in Sept.
You state you are using protection. I assume condoms? If this is the case, pregnancy is highly unlikely. It is good that you use some form of birth control if you don't want to get pregnant & condoms are very effective in preventing pregnancy. Your body is probably just getting used to being off the pill. I would take an hpt just for peace of mind. Don't be scared. We all have to do things that scare us sometimes. It's apart of life.
i stopped taking the pill because it isnt great to be on it for a long period of time. me and my boyfriend decided together also because i was very moody while taking it. we have always used condoms while havin sex but im still worried. i had my last period 4th december, so hopefully it will come. i should take a pregnancy text but want to wait until my boyfriend is with me for support!
getting off the pill, will mess up your period for a while. thats why when i got off my pill and wanted to conceive, my doctor told me to be off of it for 6months to a year . because youre period will not be regular and that will mean you wont ovulate regularily to get pregnant. so dont worry. youre good.
I stopped taking the pill in January. I have been coming on my period exactly every 28 days since i stopped (so thats Feb, Mar & April), except for this month. I got a urine infection a day before i was due on and have been on Anitbiotics....I am now over a week late. I took a pregancy test 4 days after my period was due and it showed negative. Could i still be pregnant? could there be any other reason why i am late?
I stopped taking my pills and my last birth control pill was taken on November 29, 2011. I got my period December 3rd but very very light. Me and my husband are trying to have a child and haven't used protection since I stopped the pill. I was supposed to get my period on December 31, 2011 and it never came. I took a pregnancy test on December 31st and it came out negative. I guess I tried too soon. Not sure if I am pregnant or if I am not getting my period because I used to be on the pill????
