I had sex the 20th of last month and on the following day I took 2 tablets; although I don’t normally take pills. My period is due on the 25th of the month, but I have not yet had my period. I have done 3 pegnancy tests and all of them were negative. What could possibly be the cause of my delayed period? What can I do? Please advise!
Repeat the pregnancy test on about May 10th to reassure yourself.
What 2 pills did you take on the 21st?
Until you know exactly what your pregnancy status is, use abstinence or a condom or outercourse.
Her email reply on 4-29: “It is Yasmin pills that I took. Thanks for your reply.”
RAH’s reply on 4-29: So you have been taking Yasmin pills and missed one pill and had to take 2 the next day?? If that is the case, you are at NO INCREASE RISK FOR PREGNANCY. GOOD NEWS!
Her reply again on 4-29: “Nope, I’ve not taken any pills for more than a year. It just so happened that my husband and I had unprotected sex, although I assumed that I was safe on that date (I normally get my period on or just before the 25th of the month). I took 2 of the Yasmin birth control pills the next day and I continued taking them as the entire pack was not finished.”
Where do you stand right now, May 18, 2013? Please give me a follow-up!
