User :   hello
User :   I am 26 years old and have been on birth control for 10 years. I am very regular and always get my period. The last time I got my period was about the last week of August. It's now Oct 4th and still nothing. I'm not sure if Iâ??m pregnant because I don't believe I have any other symptoms. Should I take a test? Itâ??s just weird because Iâ??ve always been completely regular. If Iâ??m not pregnant what else could it be?

Doctor :   I have got it 3 times
Doctor :   well
Doctor :   I think you need to take the Urine pregnancy test done and then take the other steps further based on the results
Doctor :   Being on birth contorl pills shall have the same effects as delayed periods and shall need to rule out pregnancy since the measures that you need to take after that
Doctor :   shall be different
Doctor :   and hence it shall be advisable to get the UPT done
