I'm on birth control (pill) and my period is a day late. Have been stressed the last two months period was light last month. How soon should I test.

1 week after misssed. period is the most reliable, but if urine is concentrated, such as first morning urine, some tests will give a postive result as soon as first day menses are due but a negative test may still be unreliable.

If I take birth control 2 days before my period, and then I took 5 of those pills as emergency conception, would that make my period late?

See an OB. Wait until your period is at least 7 -10 days late and take a urine pregnancy test.

The most important time to be taking pills is every day up until you ovulate, and a safe period of time afterwards. . Read more...
