Sorry if this has been asked before. I had protected sex about 3 weeks ago but he didn’t withdraw like he normally does which I thought would be fine since I’m on the pill. I have always gotten my period on the Monday of my pill break since my body got used to this pill which has been about a year. It’s never been late. Yet I haven’t received it and I have no signs of receiving it. I’ll normally have cramps, an increase labido and a lot more hormonal. However, Iv only been slightly hormonal. I have been ill the last 3 days, could this affect my period? I know I might seem silly panicking already when I’m not even a day late yet! I just want a piece of mind to help me get through the waiting😂 Please let me know your thoughts, as I know the pill isn’t 100% effective.

@tillyydesanta I plan on at the weekend if it hasn’t still come, it’s just that £10 is expensive if I’m just overthinking. I’ve spent so much money on tests because I got inpatient and scared

if you took your pill correctly and accounted for any interactions (eg. throwing up within 2-3 hours of taking your pill, severe diarrhea, medication interactions etc) then you’re fine. your period won’t always be on the same day every break week!

@idkJoyful Iv always taken it within the restricted 12 hours, however some days it’s not been bang on the same time every day. Iv also not thrown up or anything that could conflict with the pill. Thank you for your reply!😊

^ i’d wait until your break week is over and if you don’t have a withdrawal bleed (which is normal) then you can test if you’re anxious about it. otherwise i wouldn’t waste your money.

You dont have to take the pill at the same time every day for it to be effective. You have 12hrs to take it and be a perfect user.

If you took your pill correctly you have no reason to worry. Being ill can affect your period, but your period is never going to be exactly the same every single time anyway, you’re not a machine, it’s totally normal for things to change from time to time. Also pulling out doesn’t really reduce the risk of pregnancy so you’ve already been totally relying on the pill. If you want to take a test get ones from a pound shop or whatever, the cheap ones work as well as the more expensive ones.

@Lulu6756 oh that’s great to hear! I wasn’t sure if the effectiveness was lowered if it wasn’t taken at exactly the same time every day or if it was only lowered if I took it outside of the 12 hours. Thank you

Birth control is known to lighten and even stop periods all together, and it’s common to be more likely after time goes on. It’s totally normal and if you’ve taken your pills correctly and accounted for any interactions, then you are fine. A perfect user takes their pill any time within 12 hours. Also, as the other users stated, take a pregnancy test for peace of mind; but usually it’s advised to take one after missing two periods in a row, not just one.
