Im looking for some help. So hopfully someone will see this who knows what they are talking about. My husband is stationed 7 hours away from me so when i see him its special. I have been on the same BC for 2 years with no problems. I forgot to take it once or twice over the span of seeing him about two weeks ago. My problem is that i have a UTI and no period which should have started 4 days ago. SO the question is, Can a Tract Infection affect your period? Or should I be getting a pregnancy test done? Thanks for any feedback!

If you missed a pill once, it probably is just because of the UTI. But if you missed two pills within a week, there is a chance you are pregnant. Since your period is 4 days late, you should be able to take an early response test. I'd run out and buy one so you can stop going crazy!!
