I take Gynera which is a combination pill with 21 in a pack (no placebo pills). I’m very good at taking my pills and I only forgot to take them twice in the near two years since I have been on them (this was in the early stage and I wasn’t having sex then)
My boyfriend and I had sex on January 1st and we also used condoms and he pulled out when he came, which was once. I was in the early stages of a pill pack then (day 7 or so). I then finished that pack and almost immediately after my period started. Like, I had the last pill on the Saturday and by Sunday night/early Monday morning I had bleeding. I found this strange as normally while on the pill, my period always comes on a Tuesday after finishing the pack. I think maybe it came so early because I had taken three pill packs consecutively before, due to having exams at university and not wanting the stress of periods. This was the third pack that I finished then. The last period I had before the one in January was in early November. I then took the three pill packs one after the other from then until mid January.
I was still nervous about pregnancy so I took a test on the 28th and it was negative.
I started another pill pack on January 21st and I finished it this past Saturday (Feb 10th). However it is now Tuesday nearly Wednesday and my period hasn’t come yet. My stomach has the light cramp feelings that I normally get, but no blood. I’m scared despite having withdrawal bleeding after that last pack, I could’ve possibly gotten pregnant. Was it too early to take the test when I did? It was about 3 nearly 4 weeks after when we had sex when I took it.
My boyfriend said that we used enough protection against pregnancy but I can’t help but worry. Why hasn’t my period come?
