stopped b/c pills last month & now 2 weeks late for my period. FREAKING OUT!
quick question; and not even sure if anyone has any advise or if this is worth posting.
I've been taking ortho tri cyclen for about 4 years. Periods come like clockwork every month. Well, I had my period like the week July 13th. I then decided that I wanted to switch birth control; because my sex drive has been very low; and I thought it may have been the OTC. So, by the time I got to the doctor and got another prescription for a different pill........ I was already about 2 weeks late for when I should have started a new pack of pills. I then figured that I'd just wait until I got my period again and then start the new pack.
My boyfriend knew about this and we've been using condoms.
Well, here is is 9/2/03 and no period. I figure I'm at least 2 weeks late. No sign of a period. I don't have any "pregnant" feelings either though. Could it be that my body is just adjusting to not having the daily pill? I took a home pregnancy test this morning and it's negative; but I don't know if I should trust it.

I'm trying. It's just that we are not ready for this yet and I'm gonna hate myself for trying to "fix something that wasn't broke" if I am in fact pregnant. We've been together about 4 years; I'm 26 and he's 30...... I was just hoping to wait for a few more years; not prepared for thinking about this possibility yet.
Anyway, I believe that my cycle started about July 20th, or so. Can anyone tell me the date that I should worry, or go to the doctor for a test? If I went today, would they be able to give me a definite answer ?
I went to the doctor yesterday for a test; and it was negative. Thanks HeavenSent for your replies yesterday. I now realize that I was having a panic attack for nothing.
She just told me that; like you said and what I kind of figured; my body was just screwed up a little from not being on my regulated cycle with the birth control pills. She even told me to go ahead and start my new pack because who knows when I'll get my period naturally, and I need to be protected.
