User :   well, the third.
Doctor :   So you need to roughly have a period on 3rd/4th March
User :   yes
User :   but i get it on a thursday i have for the past 4 years
Doctor :   It is usually delayed due to the pills that you have missed.
Doctor :   But if it is delayed for more than 7 days than you have to ocnsider a pregnancy ..
Doctor :   I would advise you to take a Urine Strip test if it delays for more than 10th of March
User :   so after missing pills, the period will come within 7 days if im not pregnant.
Doctor :   A urine strip test on 13th March and a second one on 15th March.
Doctor :   Yes.
Doctor :   Usually it is so.
User :   is it always ?
User :   delayed 7 days.
Doctor :   Not always, as they are hormonal pills a lot depends on the hormonal peaking.
Doctor :   But usually not more than 7 days.
Doctor :   Please follow the following steps : User :   so .. since i almost missed 2 weeks worth, could there be a possibility my period could be delayed roughly about the same time ?
User :   ok.
Doctor :   It doesnt happen that way and the period are not usually delayed by 2 weeks as you have an intrinsic hormonal mechanism also .
Doctor :   usually one week is considered ok.
Doctor :   More than that we suspect pregnancy.
Doctor :   1. Urine strip test on 13th march
User :   ok.
Doctor :   2. urine strip test on 15th march
Doctor :   both early morning mid-stream urine if the period is delayed more than 7 days.
