Yes you could be pregnant, if that's what you're wondering.

Steps you need to take:

1. Make that appointment! Stop waiting. Go in. Find out why you are not having a period if you're not pregnant.

2. While you're there, ask for a better form of birth control such as the patch or nuvaring. You clearly need something that is minimal-upkeep.

3. If you are on a new pack of pills, make absolutely sure you take one every single day. If it's a mini pill you have to be extra careful and take it at the exact same hour every day. You CANNOT mess up or you lose protection. If you're still on the old pack where you missed all of the pills, throw it away and start a new one.

You have asked these questions NUMEROUS times.

IF you need to know if you are pregnant GO SEE A DOCTOR.

AN ultrasound or blood test will tell you if you are pregnant or not.

Taking a test. It's the only way to find out. Being scared wont change the outcome but if you think you could be pregnant it's best to know as soon as possible.

I'm in the same situation I haven't missed any pills just taking them all different times. I've had hot flushes, headaches,heartburn, I'm nearly finished my second sleeve of pill and had no period, lightheaded when I stand. I know there's a bug going about but I feel different and some of these symptoms aren't cold/flu related.

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks
