When was your last period? And have you stopped your contraceptive to fall pregnant?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Hi, it has been over 9 weeks since my last period. I am sexually active but am not trying to fall pregnant I use condoms. I took a pregnancy test after 7 weeks which was negative and another one 10 days later which was also negative
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Is there a chance I could be pregnant or is it more likely that I am just experiencing an irregular period
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I was on the contraceptive pill for years and took a few months break back in November 2020. I went back on the pill for 3 days at the end of February but stopped it again because I didn’t fell well on it, I haven’t gotten my period since then
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 11 days ago.

Okay thanks. So it sounds like pregnancy is unlikely given condoms provide excellent protection other than when they break. You would expect a pregnancy test to be positive 4 weeks after intercourse. Therefore it is always worth doing a weekly pregnancy test until your next period.

Stopping the pill can cause irregular periods and missed periods for up to 6 months after stopping.

Now that it has been over 2 months, I would suggest some blood tests to check hormones as to see why you are missing your period though.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I am really worried about pregnancy, other that a missed period I am not experiencing any common pregnancy side effects
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 11 days ago.

If you have symptoms of pregnancy such as nausea, breast changes, then arrange a blood test sooner as this is more accurate than a urine pregnancy test. If not, then continue the weekly tests. This is the only way to identify if you are pregnant as scanning doesn't often show anything until at least 5 to 6 weeks.

Is it likely that my body is just experiencing a hormone imbalance and that my period will return? I also missed a period in January and then got 2 in the month of February
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 11 days ago.

Given the negative pregnancy test, yes I do.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Ok thank you

That is my pleasure, I wish you all the best with this. Take care.
