Am I pregnant or Is my Period just late?


Posted by curious_2know

Well I have a 28-day cycle and every since I been using BIRTH CONTROL i have been having irregular periods. I started using them in April on the 22nd and I didnt know when I was going to have my period. I was suspose to come on May 16th, but I came on May 29th. Then I started taking them on and off. Me and my boyfriend had sex June 6th, the 13th, and the 14th, and I have been spotting every since I stopped taking them. I even bled one day. So I am just curious to know If I'm pregnant or Is it just because of the birth control!!! Can somebody please help me out here!!! I really want tot know!

I think you need to go take a home pregnancy test:)

When you started the birth control- did you start it at the beginning of a new cycle or mid-cycle?

With the taking them, then not taking them will cause your cycle to be odd and possibly even later.  What you are doing is increasing the hormones then letting it fall back down then increasing again. 

If you take them irregularly then your cycle will be irregular.  This could very well be the reason you are late. 

Of course you could also be pregnant.  So best to take a test.
