On generess fe birth control I was supposed to get my period over the last 4 days when I was on placebo pills. I didn't get it and was wondering why. I don't think I am pregnant since no swelling in breasts or pain. I don't know if I should take a pregnancy test or not. Has anyone else had a missed period on Generess? There is little information on line about it.

Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

If you have been taking the Generess fe birth pills regularly without missing a single dose then chances of pregnancy are almost remote.It does cause some common side effects as irregular periods,decreased or increased blood flow,spotting etc when started initially and these effects are present for initial few months of use.

It might be possible that you are having these side effects.But if the pills were missed and you had sexual contact then possibility of pregnancy can be suspected.Breast pain is not a guaranteed symptom in every woman.

Relax and if the periods do not start in a week time then visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take care!
