Am I pregnant?

On Sunday my Dr. called and told me to go off my birth controll pill because some of the side effects really got to me. It was in the middle of the pack, but I did what she told me. I expected to get my period by Tuesday because my body adjusts to he hormone changes brought by not taking the pill, but it's Thursday and it stil hasn't come. I'm very worried I could be pregnant. Once about 2 weeks ago I had sex without a condom but he pulled out, and I was on the pill so I wasn't really worried. I haven't missed a pill, and I really don't have any sings of pregnancy other than possibly being late. What is wrong? I take a low estrogen pill if that makes a difference

Hi lolxjackieee,
Thank you for your question and for joining EmpowHER. Just curious, what kinds of side effects were you getting? That's personal, so if you don't want to share it, don't worry about it.
Did your doctor suggest a different pill or form of birth control to use? In regard to your current cycle, if you were on the pill and used the withdrawal method two weeks ago, you were covered, and therefore probably are not pregnant. Be sure to not put yourself at further risk for pregnancy if you don't want to get pregnant.
If you need more information about different pills, or other forms of birth control, please let us know. There are so many options out there that I'm confident you could find a few that work for you. Not everyone gets birth control pill withdrawal bleeding, and it's not clear when you can expect to get your period when you stop taking it mid pack. You may need to wait until you have a full cycle to know what your "new" cycle is. Hope that makes sense.
Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.
