YAZ
I know many of you who had issues with YAZ asked questions about it months and months ago, but maybe I can help those of you who come to this page in the future looking for an answer. Your doctor should be telling you guys about YAZ, I don't know why they wouldn't have informed you of this, but it is meant to STOP periods entirely! It's the only birth control so far that does that. You are not really even supposed to have your period when you're on birth control, but a lot of women feel insecure or weird without their period. Normal birth control gives you a week of "sugar" pills, so that you go off the birth control just enough to have your period without risking pregnancy. With YAZ, you just take more pills during that sugar pill week. They should be telling you guys this before starting them! Hope that helped...

missed period on the pill
I'm having the same problem (as the original person). I have been on the pill for three years and have religiously started on a tuesday, wednesday at the latest. here it is friday and no period... both pregnancy tests i took said negative but it's so abnormal for me to miss a period. Honestly i'm okay with whatever at this point i just want to know! is it possible that i'm pregnant? i'm not always perfect about taking the pill.. and one day i accidentally took the pill for that day and the next day, and didn't notice until the next day when there was one missing. sooo idk any ideas? my mom suggested i wait until the day i'm supposed to start taking my pills again and take a test.

I had the same problem. I usually get my period no later than wednesday. It is saturday and I have yet to get it. However, I just got off the phone with my doctor and was told that this sometimes happens. Our hormones can become imbalanced at times. The doctor instructed me to take a test, which I did and it came up negative. He then reassured me that it is possible to completely skip a cycle and, if the test was negative, I should start my new pack of pills Sunday as I usually would because I am most likely not pregnant. Although, if you have not yet taken a test, the doctor told me to make sure I used a quality test that advertises that it can read results more early on than your standard (cheaper) test. Trust me, the $20 for a higher quality test is worth it. Good luck!

I've been on Lo-Estrin for a few months now, and I ocasaionally miss a pill or two, but I always make sure to take a ouble dose the next day. My boyfriend and I had sex last Saturday, and I was supposed to have my period the following Tuesday. It's Thursday, and still no period. I am so scared. I'm seventeen, and so not ready for a baby or even to be pregnant. I don't know what to do. /:

PANIC MODE
I'm on Aviane I take my pills everyday (one day not at the usual time but i did not have sex that day) over the month I had intercourse with my boyfriend of 7 months 3 times all times with a condom (in date, rolled down the right way, not in ripped packaging) we have made sure not to have sex while I'm on my sugar pills but I'm down to three sugar pills left and still have not gotten my period. I have always been irregular but when I was on orthotricyclyn-lo I was regular. Needless to say I have gone into panic mode.

People on this site are just trying to scare everyone its very common to miss multiple periods while on birth control. God forums suck for future reference use a medical website to help not random ass people that are unqualified to make any judgment. This is not something you should waste money or time on if you have not had any other side effects while on birth control.

Just started taking birth control.
Hi all! I have been on a birth control for a month now and I missed my period. I have been cramping like I am PMSing, but it just isn't here yet. Should I be worried or should I wait for my hormones to go back into balance?

I posted earlier in the thread about my problem.

I went to my family doctor and she did an internal examination and I had pain over my right ovary so she sent me to the hospial for an ultrasound.

I had my ultrasound yesterday afternoon and the sonographer said that everything looked fine and normal for someone of my age.

My doctor when I spoke to her about it said that some bcp's over time stop you having your bleeds each month. This is because the lining doesn't get thick enough to shed or something like that.

This could be the case for a lot of you. Speak to your family planning clinic or family doctor.

It's unlikely to be pregnancy if you're on the pill and take it properly. If you miss 2 periods in a row then it's advised to see your doctor as you might be pregnant.

Hope this helps some of you.

Hi there
I've been using Triphasil for the past three years and Genette four years prior. I misplaced my pills for about four days, and started taking them again. I had some spotting when I didn't take the pills, but I was supposed to have a period a week ago.
I have taken three tests over the past few weeks (one suggested by my doctor) and they were all negative.
I am a little worried here because my body feels different. There are no signs of PMS either.
Is it true that your period can go away after a long time of continues use? I've been on the pill for almost 7years.
HELP?

I am on lo estrin and I have been for four months now. I got my period on the usual days, then it started coming a week early. This month, I haven't gotten a period at all. I did have unprotected sex when I was taking an antibiotic a few weeks ago. I took two pregnancy tests and they both came out negative. I'm not sure what's wrong

HELP
I take Yaz and have been for about 3-4years. I took it properly until I started college this year. I also have epilepsy so the birth control pills are like 80% effective vs the 99% due to the mixture between the three meds I take. I went to visit my bf and we had protected sex. However, I missed a day but took 2 pills that day. Then during the last week of my pills I missed basically the whole week. Even the sugar pills. I think I took like one sugar pill and then started a new pack. It's been a week and I still haven't gotten my period. Could I be prego? I'm super nervous because I'm in no condition to be having a child. I am a child.

I take my birth control at the same time every day. When my boyfriend and I have sex he doesn't even cum inside of me. I missed my last sugar pill last week so, just to be safe, we've been using condoms. But now my period is going on it's 6th day of being late and I have milky white discharge. Could I be pregnant? I'm so scared.
