I'm on birth control. I had a very heavy period for 4 days and bled through my tampons, but it was a day late. And no pregnancy symptoms. Pregnant?

Pregnancy?: Birth control is not 100% - any time there is a question get a home pregnancy test. If you were recently on antibiotics this may make the birth control ineffective.

Good Luck ...Read more

If not pregnant, other causes of a late or missed period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (especially birth control pills), hormonal disorders, etc… A home urine pregnancy test is very accurate 3 weeks after sex. ...Read more

Female; 21; sharp pain in nipples, not breasts just nipples. Also no period in 5 months? No pregnancy, not on birth control, not sexually active.

See your doctor...: Your symptoms warrant an evaluation by your physician. They would confirm that you are not pregnant (if you have never been sexually active that is an obvious however, in your information you have pregnancy documented as "doesn't know" so it sounds like maybe you think it may be possible?

Is it okay to not have your period for6 months not on birth control or pregnant? What could be the problem?

Many possibilities: This could be a normal phase, but could also be a medical problem. If you are just starting to get your periods, or close to menopause, you might go for months without menstrual flow. However, there are other causes, such as being overweight or having hormone abnormalities or physical problems like tissue in your uterus blocking the flow. It is worth getting checked out with this one. ...Read more

Can birth control make you get your period even if you're pregnant?

No. No period in preg: It is impossible to have a period with/without birth control pills if one is pregnant. A period is an egg that did not get fertilized nor implanted into the uterus. No period ever happens if pregnant. BUT, sometimes bleeding happens DURING pregnancy; this is due to a lot of causes and always needs evaluation. Any bleeding in pregnancy needs a doctor's evaluation. ...Read more

If you are on your period for more then 2 weeks on birth control. Could you be pregnant?

NO: Quite the opposite, that much bleeding is actually more of an indication of not being pregnant. Has something changed with her birth control and/or did she miss pills or take them late? Any of these can cause prolonged bleeding. And sometimes it just happens. If doesn't stop by a month, or gets heavier, associated pain, ill feeling, dizziness, then get evaluated sooner to figure out cause. ...Read more

If you are on birth control and get pregnant will you still get your period during the week that you should with the pills?

PillPeriodPregnant??: That would be rather interesting if true. But if you are pregnant then you shouldn't get a true period. Some minor spotting can occur, but not the full-blown, bloaty, moody, bloody mess, unless you are losing the pregnancy.It's a little more complicated, though, with the pill's effects and an early pregnancy's effects. If you start what you think is a true period and it doesn't end normally, see your doctor ...Read more

If your on birth control and haven't had your period for 3 month and had unprotected sex is it possible for you get pregnant or be pregnant?

Yes -low probability: But the probability is low. Depends what you mean by unprotected sex. If you are taking your birth control correctly it would be hard for you to get pregnant. It is unusual not to get period for 3 months and I strongly suggest you see gynecologist for secondary amenorrhea which may be due to birth control. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. No, you are much less likely to get pregnant if you have sex during your period. Sperm can live up to five days in a woman's body. If a woman ovulated shortly after her period, any sperm that were alive and motile from when she had intercourse, could lead to pregnancy. If you are taking certain antibiotics with birth control pills, you may need to use back up birthcontrol during that time and up to a week later to prevent pregnancy. ...Read more

Does qlaira birth control make you miss your period? Definitely not pregnant and no other symptoms. Should I see a doctor anyway?

Does qlaira birth control make you miss your period? Definitely not pregnant and no other symptoms. Should I see a doctor anyway?

Combined pills: Qlaira is a combined oral contraceptive containing an estrogen and a progestin (progesterone-like). These do make periods shorter and lighter with less cramping and, over time, you can occasionally skip a period but this should not be something that happens often. If you are worried or are missing pills or taking them late, you should definitely see your doctor. Hope this helps. ...Read more

A small possibility: Birth control pills have a very low failure rate (<1%) if they are taken perfectly, but typical users (who may miss pills) have a failure rate of ~9%). I would also advise using condoms in addition to birth control pills to lower your risks of stds if you are not absolutely certain that your partner has not other partners and if you do not have other sexual partners. ...Read more

I'm 10 days past my expected period and no signs of it coming, but several pregnancy tests are negative. I'm not on birth control. What is going on?

I'm 10 days past my expected period and no signs of it coming, but several pregnancy tests are negative. I'm not on birth control. What is going on?

No ovulation: Ovulation brings on a period 2 weeks later, so if your period is late and pregnancy test negative, that means that you didn't ovulate this month. It's often due to stress, but may be from other things. If you wish to be pregnant, I would see your doctor. Otherwise, you could wait and see if your period comes or you get symptoms (maybe you ovulated late). ...Read more
