Missed Period on Birth Control Pill
I am on ortho-tricyclen and have been for over a year. I've never missed a period on the pill- and it usually comes on Tuesday, although it has varied a few times.

This month- I never got my period. I'm nervous about pregnancy, although I took my pill with 100% accuracy this month, used condoms 75% of the time and withdrawal method 25% of the time in addition to the pill, and had an ultra sound for an ovarian cyst at the end of last month so there is no chance I was pregnant before this month.

I've had issues with ovarian cysts these past few months and am supposed to switch birth control pills this Sunday.

Has anyone else had a missed period on the birth control pill? Was it due to pregnancy or some other cause ?

I haven't had this experience, but I was going to say that if you think you may be pregnant but the tests keep coming up negative, your doctor can do a quick blood test to find out for sure. Best wishes and keep us posted!!

Re: Missed Period on Birth Control Pill
Thanks for the input. SO far, I have taken two pregnancy tests. They are the tests that claim to show pregnancy up to 5 days BEFORE your missed period.

I took one 2 days after my missed period and 5 days after, and both came out negative. I am going to take another in a week to make sure.

I was experiencing tummy issues/nausea last week but they've gone away since. May have been from vacationing and an overload of rich foods which my body wasn't used to. (?)

Still nervous at the possibility of pregnancy but hoping for the best that the test next week comes out negative.

Re: Missed Period on Birth Control Pill
I missed my period on my first month of tri sprintec on six days late i took a FRER and got a positive.

We used the withdrawal method of course i took my pills on various times. I'm pretty forgetful.
