  • Test again in two weeks. If you still aren't pregnant and don't have your period, the doctor needs to do a work up on you.

  • Other things than pregnancy will affect your period. Stress is a biggie. Diet. And other medical problems that the doctor should check for.

  • What doctors don't tell you is that you should change which birth control you are on every couple of years. After a couple of years your periods start to get messed up. You may skip a period, your period may come early or you can get a non-stop period.

    "No period and negative pregnancy test

    The negative test probably means you did not get pregnant the previous cycle. It sounds as if (assuming your menses does not start in the next several days) you may have atrophic changes from the pills. This happens more often then people think. Many women don't mind not having periods as long as they know they are not pregnant. If you skip 3 cycles in a row, you doctor may want to switch your pills although you don't have to."
