switching birth control pills

I took my 7 days of dummy pills (ortho-low) and began my new prescription of YAZ. I took them for 6 days and had unprotected sex (not actually willingly). Then I fulfilled my month worth of YAZ, well now it has been 4 days that I have been on the YAZ dummie pills and have not started my period. I only have 2 more dummie pills left then I start my new pack. Is it possible to get pregnant switching pills and or is it normal to not have a period the first time switching to a new brand?

It is unlikely you are pregnant. When I was on BC, I never started my period until after I'd stopped the sugar pills and started in on the birth control pills.

You might have a different cycle now that your birth control is different. If you are afraid you may be pregnant, the prudent thing to do would be to take a pregnancy test.

Good luck!
