Changed birth control pills. History of endometriosis. Missed periods. Pregnancy chances?

I'm 20 years old and I have been on birth control for almost four years but my doctor recently changed my pills so that I take them continuously because I have a slight case of endometriosis and the first month I missed my period I have never missed one since I've been on the pill. I randomly have symptoms that feel as if I am having some type of hot flash. I have taken a pregnancy test but it came back negative and I took it after I had missed my period, is there anyway I could still be pregnant?

Hi, most probably you are not pregnant, as the test is negative, any if you are very particular, you can have H.C.G. in blood test, or a ultra sound scaning, for excluding the pregnancy.
There could be anemia which caused the delay in the period.
Yake more of green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts, and proteine rich foods. Thank you.
