no bleeding for the past three breaks on femodette

User Profile
Hi,
I have been using the contraceptive pill femodette for years.
I have not bled during the 7 day break consistantly for the past three breaks.
I have been under alot of stress lately and wonder if this could be the cause?
I have no other signs of pregnancy.
Thank you for your advice in advance

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you suspect chances of pregnancy, (possible even while being on birth control pills), you should consider your doctor/gynecologist for further 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, the absent periods could be attributed to hormonal changes and endometrial changes caused due to contraceptive use. If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation should be done to look for the underlying cause for the absent periods that you describe. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you regulate your periods. 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.
Take care.
