Thanks for the details

First of all you should take a pregnancy test

If that is negative then there is nothing to worry

This can occur with a hormonal imbalance caused by the pill

I will take a test, how long do you think it will be until i do come on and will it be heavier than normal?
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 7 days ago.

Most likely in a week or so

And if you are pregnant then there is nothing concerning at all
