Period ? may be a little tmi sorry. adult content

I thought I started my period today but there has only been blood once and then it was only a little bit. No blood since 11am this morning. Anywhere not in my urine, on the toilet paper, or on my pad. I took my last birth control pill Jan 7 and had a three of four day period like the 12th through the 14. If I was still on bc my period would have started today or tomorrow and lasted til Wednesday. Would the bc have anything to do with this? Any advice or opinions are welcome. Questions also.

  • I've never been on bc but I would imagine going off them would cause some disruption in your body & make it act unusual. Otherwise I would wait a few days and take a preggy test?

  • Possible pregnancy or side effect from bs. Any hormonal bs can make your periods lighter or almost non existent some months, my very fear of going on them I want my period as confirmation that I am not pregnant lol. Get a pregnancy test and I would recommend blood if you are early on. Pee tests have a high rate of negatives even if pregnant if its early.

  • While I was on my bc my period was pretty regular, as it was before I started taking it. I guess I didn't think it would change too awful much when I stopped it. I will probably wait a day or two and if nothing changes I will take a pregnancy test and call my doctor. I am TTC right now so maybe we accomplished what we set out to do.

  • Oh so you are trying I didn't notice you said you stopped. Well it could be either your cycle regulating or pregnancy. Good luck

  • I don't think pregnancy would be the reason unless you were inconsistent with your bc's. Possibly just a side effect of getting off the pill. You should see your doctor if you're really concerned.
