Skipping periods Chuck Norris TTC since Jan 2013; 3 kids; 3 angel babies; Fairbanks, AK, United States 18865 posts

Anyone else skip any periods while taking bc pills? I'm nursing my daughter still... haven't been nursing her any more than usual. Got my period back and have had three in a row on time on a schedule.... usually around a 28 day cycle. Looking back at my last post about my period I got my last one around the 20th of November. I haven't had another since...
That makes me 14 days late today if we go off of a normal 28 day cycle.



I took a pink wondofo test and it looked like it was negative. .. idk... I have line eyes from those tests.



Debating on buying a frer.



Did anyone else skip periods while on bc
... how did the pink wondofo tests work for you?
Think I should buy a frer?



I thought I was much later than what I am because I had forgotten that I got my period twice last month...



This is driving me crazy. Ive been taking the pills on time religiously. .. definitely don't want another baby any time soon....



Was just wondering what everyone else's experiences were.



I'm 5 months pp btw and did have one instance in 2010 @ 5 months pp where I had gotten pregnant and couldn't get a positive urine test but when I had gotten the blood pregnancy test done my levels were at a 27-28.... I miscarried two days later though....

I always skip or am incredibly late getting my period on bc pills. Is it one of the pills that shortens your period? I've never gotten pregnant on the kind that made me skip. I had to quit it cause it freaked me put so badly.

Nope. Its a progesterone only pill. I had switched to ortho tricyclen two months ago but insurance informed me they wouldn't cover it so I had to switch back to the mini pill. This is my second pack back on it. My periods since getting them back have been happening roughly every three weeks lasting about a week or a week and a half long... so probably more of a 20-23 day cycle than a 28 day one...

Maybe it's that you switched? I'd get a first response just to be sure. I only ever manage to get positives on those for some reason

I had my normal period my first month back on it around November 20th though or that would have been my guess too... idk. I'm scared to get a frer. I'm afraid to take any test (even the wondofo tests that I hear so many bad reviews on lol).... I'm terrified of seeing any second line.

Me too I always hold my breath. I really could not handle another baby right now.

Same thing happening to me too! I haven't had a period in two months and I have taken tests that all came back negative and I definitely don't feel pregnant. I've never had this happen before on the pill, it's really weird.

Its weird we are all having this happen at yhe same time... I'm glad to see others wiyh this issue as well... if we all were to end up pregnant I would fall over in shock lol... so maybe its a "normal" thing on yhe mini pill?



It does make me super freaked out though... I hate skipping periods. It just hasnt ever happened for me without me ending up pregnant. ..

My ovaries just started hurting. .. maybe I have some cysts or I'm ovulating super late? The mini pill just thickens up the cm to make a sort of barrier right? It still lets you ovulate?



That would make sense... cysts or late ovulation causing delayed AF?
