I am freaking out and don't know what exactly to do??

I have been on birth control now for just about a year straight. Never missed a pill nothing. I always take it on time every night. I usually have a 3 to 7 day cycle and sometimes on a rare occasion a 2 day cycle. Well I have not started my period at all and I am 6 days late according to my birthcontrol pack. There's not a highly chance I am pregnant but I went ahead and took a home test just to make sure and it came back negative. Is this normal not to have your period on occassion? I started a different brand of birth control but the dr told me it had the same ingridients as my other brand so not to worry. I have been on it for 2 months. I have been EXTREMELY stressed out this month but in the past I have been extremely stressed out too and started, but of course that was before my son was born. Please any advice on what I should do? Should I be worrying so much about this? Please don't bash me. My son will be 1 Jan 2.

  • If you have been really stressed and you had a negative then I would just relax and not worry about it.

  • If you are 6 days late and have a neg test then i would say you are fine. Stress can cause you Period to not start. Just relax it is not likely that you are pregnant.

  • You can miss periods on the pill. Keep taking it like always so you don't get pregnant.
