  • In my personal experience when I have stopped taking pills in the middle of a pack, I began bleeding within a few days. Except for the time when I thought I was pregnant. I quit taking them & I never started because..well..I was pregnant! lol But, I didnt get a positive test for 3 weeks. If I were you, I would test again in a week & see.

  • Unless you want to risk having multiples - you need to wait a completely cycles before trying to have children.

  • im not trying to have kids while im on the pill it was just that i started to bleed during the active pill and i ovulated when i was on the sugar pill which leaves to be believe i am pregnant.....i quit taking my bc pills on fri night and still no sign of my plan was to get off the pill anyways but not the way i did i just have a fealing that i am pregnant so i quit taking them...... how far along were you when you found out u were pregnant ?

  • By the time I got a positive test I was 7 weeks, I believe (maybe 8) Forgive my memory..that "baby" is 16 years old now! I went & had a test done at planned parenthood & they said negative. I waited two more period so I went to a clinic up at the hospital that they used to have there & they said yes, indeed I was. I really felt I was before that but it wasnt showing up yet.

  • I'd give it another week then take another test if you don't have any bleeding. I would call your gyno if you have any bleeding though.. even a faint positive line is normally positive, and bleeding could indicate miscarriage rather than your actual period.
