    it can take a while for your period to come, it used to take me 3days to come on when i was on the pill. You may just be missing a period cuz sometimes you do.
    If you dont come on this time i wouldnt worry badly id wait and see what happens next month...then start to worry if u dont come on! and get a pg test. xxx

    Shit I dont know what 2 do!

    The thing is that I know Im not gona get my period 2morow either coz I dont have the icky stomache cramps I get just before it comes.

    Is it common 2 not get it at first coz the pill packet i have is only like 20days worth but I usualy have 25days between each one.

    Some pill programmes have one or two placebos in the pack so that you dont get out of the habit of taking them every day, but you still have a period every month.

    If you are stressed then sometimes your period can be delayed, and sometimes the period pattern doesnt settle down straight away after you go on the pill. If you havent come on by Friday then get down to your GP or FPC.

    The 'period' that you have while on the pill is not the same as a period you would have while not taking the pill. So things like cramps etc generally don't happen so much. It usually takes a few days for the period to start once you take the break, and more so if you have only just gone on the pill.

    I remember when I first started taking it there was a slight panic that it might not work but if you have taken it correctly you should be fine!
    However....is there a chance that you may have put yourself at risk of pregnancy before starting to take it!
