My boyfriend and I have sex regularly. We always use a condom. I also take birth control and am pretty good about taking it on time. There have been a few times where my pharmacy forgot to refill my prescription and I didn’t get the take my pill in time. Anyways, I haven’t had any sign of blood in about 3 months on the pill. I don’t know if this is because of stress (I have bad anxiety), or because of taking some pills late, I don’t know. I also stopped taking my pill for about a week and I didn’t have any bleeding from stopping the pill. I’ve taken a pregnancy test every month and it has come out negative every time. I’m just wondering what is going on. I really hope I am not pregnant but it seems unlikely to me. I have an appointment with my gynecologist coming up soon.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You are telling you are taking those pills regularly on time and again telling,your pharmacy '' forgot to refill the prescription few times''.These two statements are contradictory.However,you have ruled out the chances of getting pregnant and thus,the possibility is pills can cause a scanty or even absent cycle occasionally and that is harmless.I have also doubt regarding your way of pill intake. Are you maintaining a pill free five days gap between the pack?If so, do not worry.Meet your doctor. Already told,it can be physiological but you need to be ruled out regarding extreme obesity,thyroid disorders,polycystic ovarian diseases or even other hormonal problems simultaneously.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
