Hi,
Thanks for query.
Yes it is normal in disturbances in menstrual cycle when she is on birth control measure because they are having estrogen and progesteron harmones and causing menstrual disturbances.
delay in period for 4day not a worry,wait for at least 10days,than go for pregnancy test,and consult a gynae.
Chances of pregnancy in your case is nil because she is on pills and you are using condom.
so don't worry.
take care.

Telll her to check if she is pregnant. There is chance that she may be pregnant before starting the pills also, get it confirmed before taking any further steps.

Hi, my girl friends and I just had sex yesterday and she is on the combinational pill Alverta and over the course of the week she had not taken the pill on time. She normally takes it at around 7 but she had taken the pill for the rest of the week from the times of 11 to 1. And we used a condom during sex still but I had inserted only for a few second without a condom. And I had not pulled out when I had a condom on when I ejaculated. Even with the condom and the birth control is it likely she will get pregnant when she was late taking the birth control.and plus she did have her period last week as well.

It s my first time using birth control pills and I got the set of pills (Lutera 28 day pill) about two months ago. The nurse told me to start the Sunday (which my period was supposed to come that Sunday or Monday). But for some reason my period hasn t come and it s been 9 weeks! (I m a virgin so I can t be pregnant). I finally got it today and I m not sure when to start it. Today is a tuesday, and I have finals this week I don t want to take the pill today because I don t know how my body will react. 1. So should I start this coming Sunday, or can i take it any time between today and and the day my period ends? 2. When I start my first pill, should I start with the hormone pill (white) or inactive (pink) pill? 3. I will be going on a week long family trip in the summer (July) so when should I take my pills to plan a missed period during that time according to the trip? 4. I would prefer my periods to come during the week like mon-friday. how should I know what day to take it? Please help. Thanks!
