Just a quick question for those who have been on (or are currently on) the Cerazette mini pill. I’m really late for my period this month, and although my doctor said it was possible that the birth control could stop my period, I’m starting to freak out! My boobs are sore, but I’m wondering if the birth control is making it so that I just get PMS symptoms without actually getting the period. Is this the possible/probable explanation, or is there a chance I’m pregnant?

I don’t know about that particular birth control, but I have skipped one or two periods on Yaz. Of course, there is a chance you are pregnant– no BC is 100%, but it’s more likely because of the pill. Taking a test is the only way to know, so I would do that ASAP to put your mind at ease. I personally won’t start back up on the next pack until I’m sure.
It sucks how PMS symptons and pregnancy symptoms are so similar!

Are you late by a few days or over a week late? If its over a week I would take a pregnancy test just to eliminate that option

I am on Loestrin24Fe, and I started freaking out when I missed my period, so I did some research online, and read that it BC can cause change in periods. I now only have a period once every 2 months or so, but still get cramps and tender breasts in the months that I don’t have the period. I am loving it, but it was extremely stressful the first month or so. Do some research, and see what other women have experienced on that same pill. Stress can also cause late or missed periods too.
