Low chances, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a withdrawal period.

If a woman gets her normal regular withdrawal period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

Took bc pills late 2d in a row and a day later, I have period-like bleeding 4d before my placebo week. On day 2 of bleeding. Should I be concerned?

Take the low dose types within the same time taken the previous day/evening to avoid this. ...Read more

Can't skip period: No disrespect is intended. If you had the idea that last month's worth of endometrium (the lining of the uterus that must be shed each month) would simply disappear, i'm sorry. At the end of the month, it is shed and it is gong to pas? Who told you that you could avoid a period? It's obviously untrue and it's for you to decide whether the intent was malicious. ...Read more
