  • Delayed Period After Stopping Pills

    So I started using BC on April 14th my period came on normally except earlier few days than before I used the pills. My last pill was June 1st & I've decided to stop taking them. My period was predicted to be coming on June 7th but now I'm 4days late. Is it the side effect of the pills or stopping the pills? I'm anxious now as I've never been late.

  • I have heard that birth control pills can cause your cycle to be irregular, especially when starting them. I see that you have been on them for less than 2 months. I would think that the irregularity is nothing to worry about. It is the weekend and fewer people are posting. Give it a few days so one of the ladies who has experience can post.

    • Yeah, yesterday I made a call to a pharmacist to ease myself asked him regarding it & he also told me the same that it is normal some may have no period up to 6 months. But I'm still worried as I've had sex without protection after my last pill now I'm not sure whether to continue taking the pill because if the chances of pregnant is there then taking pills is not gonna help anymore.
