  • Depends on what you take. The pill doesn't take but a few days I think. So not to be sarcastic but yeah you should worry....Give it about a week and take a HPT.

  • most stay in your system for about 4-6 days... i wouldnt stress to much about it. begin taking it like you normally would. if when your monthly should come... and it doesnt or you have other pg symptoms... then take a hpt.

  • it varies depending on what birth control you were one...i.e. i was on the NuvaRing and it can take a few months to get out of your system as to where the pills usually don't...so yeah i'd maybe take a test in a few weeks

  • I WAS TAKING LOESTRIN 24 PILLS. IF I RESTART A NEW PACK THIS WEEK SHOULD I STILL TAKE A HPT?

  • My doc said you could get pregnant right away, and she also said that you should use condoms for the first two months after you stop taking the pill so that your uterin wall can get thick. Otherwise miscarriages are more likely.

  • If you were taking loestrin, you could be pregnant. I would make an appointment with the doctor who gave you the pills and talk to him/her. Loestrin must be taken on time everyday. If you don't want to be pregnant, then I would get some condoms until I could restart them the sunday after you start your period. THEN, you have to use condoms for the first week after until the hormones start working.

  • our plan isnt always Gods plan. If he thinks it is time then you will probably be preg. Good luck i hope it works out for you either way.
