If you were on birth control how long would you wait to take a pregnancy test if you were late?

My period was due Sunday. Is it normal for it to be a few days late or should it come right on the first day of the sugar pills? Haven't missed a pill so I doubt I'm pregnant but it's still kinda scary being late.

  • I'd wait til you've skipped more than one cycle.

  • I've been on it for about 5 months now. I've been getting my period the first or second day of the sugar pills til this month. I will have to test on the 10th if I don't have it by then. It's my last day to cancel my venue for my wedding and get the deposit back. =/ This would be very bad timing. lol But if I am it was obviously meant to be. =)
