Missed period while on BC

So, I have not had a period since June. My Dr. gave me progesterone pills for ten days and still nothing. He gave me birth control at the end of sept to jump start my cycle. I finished my pack about 4 days ago and I still have not had a period. I did have unprotected sex with my husband. Could my bc fail and I am pregnant? My breast have been tender, been nausea, bloated, headaches. Any answered would be awesome! Thanks so much!

Re: Missed period while on BC

you could certainly be pregnant. Its always a possiblity with unprotected sex...did your doctor do a pregnancy test when he prescribed the b/c pills? I would hope so, as being on b/c pills when pregnant isnt a great idea.

At this point, I would definately be calling your doctor, having blood pregnancy tests done and suggesting additional tests...possibly a ultrasound (pelvic) to make sure there is nothing else going on...

Good luck. Keep us posted.

Yes, he did do a pregnancy test last time i was in the office. I do have a follow up appointment on tuesday. Thanks so much for your response. My husband and I are trying for a baby. We just need to get my periods regulated.

Re: Missed period while on BC

If you had not a period since June, then you are 4 months pregnant- a test will tell if you are pregnant or not.

On the other hand, you may also have an anovulatory disorder that's causing you to have irregular periods.

Re: Missed period while on BC

I have taken several pregnancy test since June, and so has my dr. and they are negative. The last pregnancy test that was taken was in Sept. I am looking for any other reason why I missed my period while on birth control or if anyone thinks my birth control failed.

Re: Missed period while on BC

Some women are just lucky that they stop having periods when on birth control. If you're not pregnant then I would just assume it's the birth control causing you to not have a period.

The only way you'll know if your bc failed is if you take a pregnancy test and find out you're pregnant. Then you'll know!

But I'm surprised the doctor didn't tell you that birth control can cause you to not have a period. It's common knowledge so I'm not sure why he/she didn't tell you that in the first place?

I'm so fed up with my periods, I'd be GLAD if I found a pill that made me stop having them! So far I haven't been so lucky! You should be happy about not having to deal with a period! I sure would be!
