  • depending on where you get it you can find them cheaper than $10 also the store brands work just as good as the name brands. I would take another one if your already a week late. Are you having any other symptoms?

  • a few thoughts come to mind: 1) wait another week, it's still early. 2) are you stressed out? that can affect ur period. 3) are you exercising or dieting? that also affects ur period. 4) are you trying to get pregnant?

  • It could be that you are late in ovulating. I would wait another 5-7 days and take another one.

    I have had cycles where I would go 70 days without a period because I didn't ovulate.

  • You can probably find pregnancy tests at the dollar store. I would use those, and then if one of those comes up positive, then use the good one to confirm.
    How long have you been out of pills? Have you had sex since you ran out? If not, then I think you're safe to take them. If you are on the placebo week (sugar pills) and you haven't had a cycle, it's okay to continue the pills. But I would take a cheap test just in case, or you can go to the doc and have them do a blood test.

  • i just had an idea... im going to call planned parenthood where i get my birth control.. and see if they can do a blood test for free.. then if its negative.. resume the pill..
    thank u ladies for the advice!
