i have been on birth control for 4 years now. i have never missed a month ever up until this past december. i went away for a weekend and forgot my pack so i missed so many nights that i threw the pack away like it said so in the intstructions. now i have a new pack ready to begin to take but ive been waiting for my period so i can begin the pack the sunday after my period. i have still not had my period. i have taken 6 pregnancy tests all negative, i have gone to a clinic where they performed a pregnancy test which was also negative. im wondering why i havent gotten my period for two months?? me and my boyfriend have sex regularly until this mess happened.
could my body be so used to the birth control after years of taking it that now my body is sort of confused? my aim is not to be pregnant.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been sexually active after missing your active pill intake, then chances of pregnancy are possible, and if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not pregnant, and if you have still not had your periods (after stopping with birth control use), you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for your absent periods (especially rule out post-contraceptive use ovarian suppression or failure). Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you get your periods and regulate them. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
