Is it possible I'm pregnant?

I missed almost 2 weeks of my birth control pills and had sex with my boyfriend a week before school started in September. I have since been back on my pills but haven't gotten my period yet, he pulled out before ejaculating. I've felt like throwing up after eating certain foods but it's happened before, I took a test about 2 weeks ago and it came back negative but still no period...is it possible I'm pregnant?? I really need help with this, I'm a senior in high school.

I have started re taking the pills with a new pack and have been on them for 3 weeks.

Hi Anonymous,

Continue to take your birth control pills regularly. Hopefully, you will start your period while taking the inactive pills. It is possible that high stress levels, with starting school again, or missing almost two weeks of active pills, caused a hormonal imbalance, which affected your menstrual cycle.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about possibly being pregnant.

When you miss more than seven consecutive days of your active hormone containing birth control pills, you have no protection against pregnancy. Having sexual intercourse during the two weeks that you missed taking a daily pill put you at high risk. The withdrawal method, which is pulling out before ejaculation, is only effective if your boyfriend is experienced and has great self- control,
knowing exactly when to pull out.

I am surprised that you didn't have break through bleeding when you missed almost two weeks of active pills. You should have started your period when you started taking the inactive pills.

Anonymous, have you started a new pack of birth control pills?

I have two suggestions. You can re-test, or call your physician who prescribed the birth control pills and report what happened and that you have not started your period.

Please keep us updated.
