Why is my period delayed? Can I be pregnant?

My last period started 2 Feb 2016. That period was already delayed as i counted 37days cycle when my usual is 31. i had a protected sex Feb 14 but since I don't want to get pregnant I needed to be sure I wont be so I bought a Trust Pill and 5hrs after the protected sex I took 2Tab 3x a day as previously prescribed by a doctor when me and my bf had a condom problem. I stopped taking the 2tabs 3x a day after i finished pack and continued taking pill 1x a day on same time everyday. I finished the 2 pack March 9 and from then on I stopped taking pills. As I am not really a sexually active person.

I expected that my next period would either arrive March 4 (31days cycle) or March 10 (37days cycle) . Been testing myself using HCG PT and came out negative.

Am I adjusting to the pills i took or am I pregnant? What should I do?

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Since you had protected sex and if you took the other medication as instructed, they you are not pregnant. Anytime you introduce more hormones to your system your body will need time to adjust. You have a negative pregnancy test. Your menstrual cycle will eventually adjust to what you are use to or create a new normal.

Be well,
