Periods get postponed by 2-3 days

Every following month my wife’s periods get postponed by atleast 2-3 days. This has been happening for about 3-4 months now. Because of this we are unable to identify her safe period for unprotected intercourse. Is this normal and what is the cause? She is not on any birth control measure. Are low dose contraceptive pills really safe for having unprotected intercourse around 4 times a week ? Are home pregnancy test kits 100% reliable ? When should they be used for accurate result ? Which one do you recommend ?

Every month 2-3 days delay is not abnormal.It is better to use contraceptive pills like Novelon or Femilon which are very low dose with least side effects. Home pregnancy kit is not 100% reliable.It should be done after 3 days of your expected date of menses with very first morning urine sample.You can have Pregcolour card or Accucheck card.

hi, last month when I had my period I started back on the microgynon pill after a year of being off it. I stupidly didnt take it regularly enough and after my period ended I was having constant brown discharge for 2 weeks, I went to doctors and had all the tests and everything was fine, they said.it could be the pill where ive not taken it properly so I stopped taking it and after 3days it all stopped. So I started the pill again this month when I came on and have taken the pill properly everyday, but came on my period a week later then normal which I guess is because of last.months mess up, I bled for 7 days and now have am into the 2nd day of brown discharge again. its really starting.to frustrate me, is it because its my body sorting out from last months mess up or the pill? but ive been taking it properly where as last time I wasnt so I dont know what to do.would appreiciate some sort of answer.
