It has been 3 days and I start my new pack tomorrow. The lo loestri. Comes with 26 blue pills and 2 white ones and two brown ones. Yesterday was my last brown one! Should I be worry? Should I take a pregnancy test? I never miss a period, I am regular

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!

: Quick question: i have been on tricyclin 28 day birth control for about two years... long story short. i had an extra pack with the last half of pills still in the package and i lost a previous package so i decided i could just take those that i had(everything was normal). But i forgot to put my label on my package since my week started on a wednesday which caused my stupid head to take 4 of the third week pills over the last 4 days when i was suppose to be on my sugar pills. my period is now late and i was wondering if i should just start my new pack on wednesday like it s scheduled or if i should start my sugar pill week today and give my body that break from the pills to get my period and then start my pills in 7 days again... i hope this wasn t too confusing to understand

Hi, My wife had just gone through IVF process and had the Embryo Transfer on the 25th May 2014 (16 days ago) Proluton Depot 250mg was given on the transfer day itself, and every 3 days after that. The last injection given was on the 6th June. Also given was PREGNYL 5000IU on the day of the transfer and 3 days interval twice(6th June was the last Pregnyl Injection). Today, we made a BLOOD HCG and the result shows negative. What went wrong? Do Pregnyl or Proluton effect the reading of HCG in blood?
