Brief Answer: Repeat the pregnancy test Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX For birth contraception, the oral contraceptives (OCPs) have to be taken regularly starting with each menstrual cycle and ending with each cycle. Contraception fails if the proper regime is not followed. Since, two menstrual cycles have occurred even after two sexual acts, it is unlikely that pregnancy has taken place. However, pregnancy test needs to be repeated to rule out or confirm pregnancy. Since, the pregnancy test has been negative, the possibility of pregnancy is remote. And the disturbance in menstrual cycles is a common side effect of taking iPill, please relax and repeat the pregnancy test after 1 week. If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.

Hi Doctor, it is been three months since I have a surgery to remove only the fibroids. After my first menstrual cycle I had 7 days of bleeding which I had to wear pads. It was not heavy, when I went to see my gynecologist he put me on birth control. I began taking it two days before my menstrual period. I can say I do not have my period, but I still have painful cramps. Why do you think because I am very concerned about that.
