Taking tri sprintec. No period. Can I take a urinary pregnancy test to ease my mind?

I m new to taking tri sprintec. I take it religiously and the first pack I had my period 3 days before placebo week. This month however I m on my second placebo pill and no period. Can I take a urinary pregnant test to ease my mind. And will it give me a true result or will the birth control force it to record positive because of the hormones in the tri sprintec?

Thanks for the query.

It will take sometime for menstrual rhythm to get adjusted while taking the pills.
So you need not worry, possibly you will get periods soon.
If you still having doubt, better to go for blood test for pregnancy.
Compared with urine pregnancy test blood test will give more accurate results in ealr pregnancy also.

Take care.
