the pill keeps your body more regular than it may be naturally. Going off the pill could have caused you to be late. If you are under a lot of stress, your cycle could also be affected. Antibiotics also impact your cycle.

The good news is that the pregnancy test came back negative. If you're really nervous, you should take another one in a couple of days. If you haven't started after a week has gone by, make an appointment and go see a doctor.

When I was 17, I didn't have a period for two months and no one could tell me why. I wasn't pregnant and there was no other reason other than stress. It's not unusual to be irregular when you aren't on the pill anymore.

In the future, if you aren't going to be on the pill or something else, please, please, please use a condom when you're with your boyfriend. Pulling out is not a good method and is actually very ineffective. Before a guy orgasms, some fluid comes out of his penis that's called "precum" or pre-ejaculate. Since a guys penis uses the same tube to ejaculate and to pee out of, the pre-ejaculate happens to clear the way for the semen when he's about to climax. This pre-ejaculate can have sperm in it and it only takes one of those to get you pregnant. If he's wearing a condom though, it will catch the pre-ejaculate and the semen when he orgasms and will keep you safer in the long run.

Also, condoms do reduce your risk of catching an std. Please, please, please, please make him wear a condom for your own safety.
If you need anything else, let me know.
Peace,
jenn

Your period is probably just messed up from stopping the pill. You can test again in a few days.
