Been off birth control pills, irregular periods since, cramping, low back pains, HPT negative. Reasons ?

I ve been off birth control pills since July 18th 2012. I had a period a few days after i stopped taking my pills. I had a second period August 26th. Now it s October 4th and still no period. I am now a week late. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it came back negative. I had slight cramping, but doesn t feel like period cramps . I have also been having light lower back pains. Is there a possibility I am pregnant? Also i have never had a period this late. Thank you!

Hi, thank you for asking Healthcare Magic.
Irregular periods is one of the common side effects experienced by women after cessation of birth control pills. This might go on for some time even up to a year. Some drugs like Dydrogesterone may help regulate the periods. If a home pregnancy test is negative, then it is not possible that you are pregnant. You may see a gynecologist or GP for prescription and proper follow up.

I hope that answers your query. If you have more questions or any follow up query do not hesitate to write to us.
I wish you well
