Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

Even though you did not take your pills consistently, having a regular period is a good sign you are not pregnant.  If you are still worried you may be pregnant you can take a pregnancy test 2 or 3 weeks from now.  The results of the test will be accurate by that time.
