Why have I not got my periods even after taking birth control pills ?

I used contraceptive pills and then had sex for 3 days. I stopped taking the pills and its been 4 days since then, I didn t have my periods. My normal date is yet to come. Does it mean i m pregnant?

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Did you take the oral pills for the full cycle and this is your pill free period? If this is so then right now you are protected and you need not worry. Just a minor hormonal disbalance has caused this. You just wait for your period to come and after that only start with the next strip.

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!

Last month I was given the generic brand of my birth control pill. I ve been on the pill for 15+ years and I have always been regular on and off the pill. On the generic brand I had breakthrough bleeding for 2 weeks and then when I was on the placebo pills I had my period. After that I resumed taking my regular birth control pill which is Alesse. This time on the placebo pills I never got my period! The only time I ve ever skipped a period is when I was in fact pregnant. I tested 5 days after the placebo pills with afternoon urine using First Reponse Early Pregnancy Test and it said negative. Is it possible I m pregnant? I ve never missed a period on the pill before.

Hi, I am 25 years old and I m sexually active. I had my monthly cycle on 2nd of January and got over on 7th of January, as i have PCOD, i take diane 35 to regulate my periods. I had protected sex, means we used condoms and had sex on 8th of January and on that very night, I started taking my Diane 35 pils. Then, we had protected sex on 16th of January and after that on 24th of January. But during the time of having sex, we used condoms, and I took my pills on regular basis. My pills got over on 28th of January as the 21 pills got finished. So, according to the pills, I should get my periods on 3rd or 4th February, but haven t got yet. Is there any chance of getting pregnant? Because I haven t got my periods yet and I don t want to get pregnant. Please help!

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
