am i pregnant?

last month i started birth control but i only took about a weeks worth, which made me have a 2 week long period. which is why i stopped taking it. well this month my period is so far 5 days late. i took a pregnancy test about 3 days after i should have started and it said not pregnant. i did have unsafe sex with my fiance, so i could be pregnant. but the test said negative. could the 2 week long period have affected this month? should i take another pregnancy test?

  • I would go to your doctor and get a blood test done. Those are way more accurate than the OTC preg test. If the blood test comes back negative, then you can talk with your doctor about the issues with your birth control pills.

  • I suspect your cycle is screwed up..I'd wait a week or so and try again if you don't get your period.

  • I agree with Lilly. Starting new hormones has probably thrown you off. Test again later, you're probably ok though.
