Has anyone missed their period while on the pill?? I started taking the sugar pills over a week and a half ago and there is zero clues of my period comming. I have taken a pregnancy test over the weekend and it was negative . I have been under a bit of stress – work and Uni, but not too much more than usual & I have never in 10 years missed a period. Any suggestions?

How long have you been on your current prescription? If it’s relatively new, that could be the reason.
I have always struggled with regularity in my periods. After years of being on the same BC prescription, I still sometimes skip, a few times a year. I’m pre-med and have studied the woman’s reproductive system extensively and talked to my OBGYN about the reasons for skipping, and I have concluded that our periods are dictated by black magic.

haha thanks sally_g_2014 yea I have only been on it for about 3 months & my last period went for just over two weeks. That was about 3 weeks ago – I was hoping it would be something to do with just starting the pill! I was also really worried because I was feeling overly emotional last week and moody – which is not me at all. My poor partner lol.

@littlemissbossy: I have missed the last two months on the pill, with negative tests and a negative blood test. My doctor was not overly concerned, she said that it happens sometimes on the pill.
Because I have been watching way too much ” I didn’t know I was pregnant” I plan to test each month if my period doesn’t turn up, just in case!

I’m not sexually active but yes, sometimes I don’t have my period for three months at a time even when I take my sugar pills, likely due to my stress from school. Imagine my panic the time when Fiance and I were intimate and I didn’t get a period! But if you are sexually active and you normally get periods, you should take a pregnancy test and see your obgyn if you keep missing your period.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets worried when I watch those shows LOL!!!
I have missed a period while on the pill, especially when starting a new one, because the hormones are different in all of them… and it could just be affecting you differently.
Where are you from, though? Are you taking Yaz/Yasmin by chance? EDIT : Or Alysena?

@littlemissbossy: Stress is a huge factor when it comes to periods. I’m also on the pill and if I’m really stressed and start the sugar pill it can take up to two weeks for my period to come. I, however, skip my period so I get it every 8-10 weeks. But stress is still a huge factor.
