I'm 20 years old and have been on the pill since I was 17. I've always had very light periods that only last between 2-4 days and once I started the pill they became even lighter. They are usually pretty regular and I've never missed a period or had one be exceptionally late. I had sex twice about a month ago and did get my last period a month ago. I can't remember if the last time I had sex was right before or right after my last period though (which is why I'm nervous). I was taking bc and using condoms on both occasions. I know the chances of me being pregnant are incredibly slim statistically in this situation but I need some reassurance because I normally would have gotten my period last thursday and I still haven't gotten it yet (today is tuesday). I have however seriously messed up taking my bc this past month. I missed pills up to days at a time and then took them all at once (up to 3 pills in a day...I know you're not supposed to I don't know what I was thinking). This happened at least twice this month. I was not having sex during this time though. I also decided to just not take the placebos at all because I figured I'd already messed up it up. I have not started a new pack (would have on sunday) because I'm terrified about having not gotten my period yet. Not to mention the fact that I've been incredibly stressed lately (to the point of getting sick from fatigue). Of course worrying about this is only fueling the fire. Please help. I'm way too freaked out to go take a pregnancy test because I'm absolutely petrified it will come out positive and I wont' know what to do.
