      Im a week late on my period and its normally very regular. I have been on the pill for years. I have missed a pill here and there and just taken two or three the day i realize i missed them and never been pregnant. I took a test today after work and it was negative. so I need to know if I should start taking my new pill pack that is supposed to start today and when should i take another test? should i wait til next month if i miss my period again? I just havent been feeling myself lately!

      Thanks for the help.


        Hi Lappin,
        I can understand your concern right now. I don’t blame you for being a little freaked out.

        With regard to when to take your next pill, you need to call your doctor. We’d love to be able to give you medical advice but we’re not medical professionals!

        Have you ever considered not taking birth control? I know it is just so easy to pop the pill and not have to think about it, but birth control can have serious health consequences. We want the best for you and we want to protect your health and safety.

        Pregnancy tests are generally accurate about 7 to 10 days after sex. If it has been that long since sex, you can take another test. I suggest going to http://www.optionline.org, and looking up your local pregnancy resource center. They will give you a free and confidential pregnancy test and even help you interpret the results.

        Let us know how you’re doing!
