Can I miss periods on birth control and not be pregnant? I am sexually active and took 3 pregnacy test all were negative

Yes! If you are taking birth control pills correctly and stop having periods you are still protected from getting pregnant. Some women love not having periods. Others hate it because they worry about pregnancy every month. If it scares you not to have a period, you can see your doc and switch to a different pill that gives you a period each month. Best wishes!

Several causes. There are several causes for delayed cycle and negative pregnancy test.

Off birth control for a month, went back on it and was sexually active, used condoms, got my period and 4 negative tests, having pregnancy symptoms?

Trust the test. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Read more...

Repeat pregnancy test. A home urine pregnancy test won't turn positive until 10-14 days after conception. Using the 1st urine of the morning will concentrate the beta-HCG hormone in the urine. So test at 14 days & if negative again a few days later using 1st urine of the morning. If both are negative, you're not pregnant. Read more...

PCOS? It's hard to say what's going on for sure without more information; you really should see your doctor. If you are very young, it is normal to have irregular periods for the first year or so. If you are near menopause, then that is probably the cause. Otherwise, the most common cause of this would be polycystic ovarian syndrome. You need to have a period at least every 3 months so see your doc. Read more...

My period was shorter than normal & I am not on birth control & I am sexually active & I have some pregnancy symptoms could I pregnant?

Possible. Pregnancy is possible but difficult to tell based on the symptoms your described. Remember if you just had your period then either you are not pregnant or possibly had a spontaneous miscarriage. If that's not the case, then consider taking a home pregnancy test. Also please try to be safe and always use condoms when sexually active. Read more...
