My LMP was Dec. 19, 2012 (I have a regular 30-day cycle). I am expecting my period by Jan. 18, 2013. Dec. 24, 2012, I started using bcp. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to continue with the bcp starting Jan. 8, 2013 since my pouch was lost in a public cr. Hence, I was only able to take bcp from Dec. 24-Jan. 7. Since no bcp, withdrawal was used.

By Jan. 10-11 I have had 2 days medium light bleeding and as per inquiry, was withdrawal bleeding due to bcp.

After the withdrawal bleeding I have had symptoms such as nausea, sleepiness, leg cramps, pelvic cramps, lower back pain, hip pain, sore breast and vaginal discharge (from elastic ones to milk white discharge).

My period didn't came at Jan. 18. I took pt on Jan. 22, but, it was negative. Up to the present time, i have no period and still having vaginal discharge and a sore breast.

As of today, FEB. 5, 2013, its been 49 days since LMP and 19 days late for menstruation. I never take another hpt.
Any replies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  The use of birth control is to prevent the body from producing the hormones required to ovulate and menstruate. Your period naturally comes as a result of ovulation, when you are on birth control the period comes while taking the placebo pills due to a sudden decrease in your hormone levels. When a woman stops taking birth control the body can potentially take several months to regulate the normal production of those essential hormones needed to ovulate and menstruate.
