l recently took a break from my mini pill of nearly 5 years.
my cycle was every 26 days. l stopped the mini pill February and l got my period normal on the day it was due and last for 4 days. my last period came in march on the day it was and left within 3 days of spotting. l started taking my mini pill mid cycle ( l was told it was ok and l would be protected after 3 days) now this month April my due date was 7th, has been and gone...l have taken a few different brands of pregnancy test all where NEG. lm not going to lye but l did have intercourse the morning l started the pill. lm worried l might be pregnant (unwanted) and l have conceived. l was wondering how long do l have to wait before consulting a doctor as the pass few years l have had one here and there where it has been 31 days or 33 days. thanks for your help

Thank you Daisy

This morning l woke up with bright red discharge, lm hoping it picks up in flow and goes darker. l have mid cramps and it felt very dry and hard when trying to insert a tampon. l will not be a 100% happy until l know for sure this is the start of my period and not a implant happening. lm going to think positive that it is my period returning.
Thank you so much for your advice.

Hi Heather Affleck,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Since you have stopped and started again on the pill. That can also cause some changes to your cycle.  You might need to wait a few more days and see if you do get your period.  If not, you will need to see your doctor for blood work.
