Birth control is a way to sort of trick your body into beliving that its pregnant you just dont grow a baby. Your hormones are out of wack pretty much like they would be if you were pregnant so its most likely your hormones that have ur period all screwed up !!

If your pap was scheduled 2 months from when you ran out of birth control, and it has been about 2 months since you've had your period, i'm thinking this is a good question to ask your health care provider.

That said, it is the hormones that have whacked out your system. You don't have to understand it, that is just the way it is. It depends on how fast your body cleanses itself of the birth control hormones. If you have taken two pregnancy tests, and both have been negative, you are more than likely not pregnant.

Next time there is a lapse between your patch and your appointment, call the doctor's office and explain to them that you need a refill on your birth control. They do that over the phone.

birth control can stay in your system for longer then your taking it. Just because you havent been using it dosent mean that your body has completley forgotten about it.
