birth control


Question by  conan (34)

What should I think about a missed period while on birth control?


Answer by  HannahTheWitch (45)

Many birth control commercials say there are side effects and missed periods are usually one of them. Also Birth Control pills don't always work. Don't sweat it:)

Women's menstrual cycles can vary due to many reasons, including things like diet and age. It is probably nothing to worry over, but only a gynecologist can tell for sure.

If you have taken all the pills exactly as directed and have not missed any, it is probably nothing to worry about. It's possible to occasionally miss a period while on the pill. However, if you have missed any pills, you might be pregnant and should see your doctor right away.

It is possible to miss a period while on birth control. Some birth control actually causes periods to be irregular, depending on the type of birth control. If you are very worried about it then you can get a home pregnancy test for a few dollars.

Some birth controls cause you to miss periods occasionally. Take a pregnancy test, if you're not pregnant you should be fine.
