Start a new pack of brevicon (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone). No period?

Check a PG test: Assuming that is negative, many pills do not build up enough tissue in the endometrium to cause a period and the way to show that is a pelvic ultrasound that I do in my patients to prove there are no problems.
