I am on the contraceptive oral pill dianette. I took 21days

Resolved Question:

I am on the contraceptive oral pill dianette. I took 21days worth then my 7 day break fell on fri 14th. I'm due to start back on my 21days tomorrow, but have not had a period yet. I took a pregnancy test yesterday which came back negative. Do I continue taking my pill as normal?

Hi--just to check here--how long have you been on the pill--more than just this past month?

I was on microgynon the month before, but just had the normal 7day break then started on the new pill.

OK Louise. At this point you can start your next pack of pills on schedule but let your doctor know about this. You may still start your period in a day or two and that's OK. When switching pills like this there can be a bit of irregularity with the period for a month or two
