I had unprotected sex about 2 weeks ago, but I was on birth controll and we used the pull out method. I'm only supposed to get my period every 3 months, so I didn't get it at the end of February because I never stopes taking birth controll as directed by my doctor. On Sunday I knoticed my pill was making me depressed, as many in the past had- so I stopes taking it in the middle of a pack.but I still haven't gotten my period. Everyone says I'm not pregnant, I even took a test on Thursday to see. It was negative, but I'm bloated and tired. I'm normally tired, but the bloatedness worries me. What do you think? Am I pregnant? Normally I get my period at the end of the month if it's one of the months I am supposed too

Thanks for your question. If you had sex and were on your birth control pill-- then you had protected sex, not unprotected. Bloating is very common when you're close to getting your period so this may be a sign that it's coming soon. Also, since you just stopped taking your pill last Sunday give it time to come back. It's too soon to test for pregnancy if you had sex 2 weeks ago but if you're really that worried and don't get your period in the next 2 weeks, then you can test for pregnancy again.

All the best!
