I typically have irregular periods but since I became sexual active I've grown concern when it doesn't come when it should . I'm 5 days late from when I should have started . I started taking birthcontrol pills March 18, I was wondering if that could be the reason I'm late . I mean a week ago I broke out and was blotted as if my period was due . Now I have really sore breast . I'm just really worried I may be pregnant . Help?

You're only a few weeks into taking the pill. It can take up to 12 months for your body to completely adjust to being on the pill.

It's probably just the hormones in the pill messing with your periods and giving you the sore breasts and everything.
