Hi! I just finished my first pack of Ortho Tri Cyclen. I was on Junel Fe for two years before I began Ortho Tri Cyclen. My OBGYN prescribed the Ortho because the Junel was causing breakthrough bleeding, even though I was taking my pills correctly.
My partner and I always use a backup method of birth control (condoms) even though I am on the pill, and this past month has been no different. As far as I know, there were no slip-ups with the condoms. I was a first-day start on my pills with Junel, so I start my pills on Friday and take my last one on Thursday. So, I took my last active pill Thursday and usually get my period by Saturday night/Sunday morning. It is now Sunday afternoon and still no sign of a period.
Could this be because of the pill change, or should I be concerned about pregnancy?
