hey ladies image

i'm new to this & just have a couple of questions.

I've been on various pills since the age of 16 (i'm now 22), up until last Oct/Nov I was tri-cycling (3months on pill - 1 week off).  In Oct/Nov I switched to the mini-pill Cerazette which I was told to take continuously without a break.  However, 3 weeks ago this Thursday I took my last pill as I hadn't reallised I had to reorder them thinking I still had some left.  Usually within 2-3 days of stopping my pill I have my period but it's now almost 3 weeks & I've had nothing.  


At the beginning of last week I had a little spotting - maybe 4 or 5 tiny spots of blood (sorry if too much info!) but nothing else.  I have also had mild pains in my stomach which don't really feel like cramps & never come to anything, I've also been a lot more tired for the past few weeks.  

I went to my doctor yesterday & was told to hand in a urine sample with my first pee of the morning.  Today I did that however I accidently knocked the sample bottle into the toilet as I pulled the flush & it went down the toilet!  So now I have to wait until tomorrow to hand another sample in.  My fiance wants me to get a test tonight but I'm not sure what to do - any ideas/thoughts would be great!


Sorry its so long.

    Well a test only costs a few pounds and then you will know!

    I know but I'm just not sure if it will show up if I am, xx

    I haven't used my first pee on either test and it showed up right away. If it's negative you'll still be able to give tomorrow's to the doc...

    The only way you will know for sure is to test. It could be that it's just a bit irregular due to being on the pill, I know plenty of ladies on here have had that but it could be that you are pregnant (I fell straight after stopping pill and didn't realise until I was 10 days late) if you can wait Until the morningo take a sample and have someone else tell you then do that as it will save you pennies but if not just grab a cheaply in your nearest shop and either do it tonight or take it first thing!

    I'm on cerrazette and my last proper period was 24th June last year. I was th same swapping from one pill to this one. Since my last period twice I have experienced spotting but also severe cramps in my stomach it only last one or two days which I would much rather put up with that for two days every now and again then a period every month! But I agree with the others just get a test to put your mind at rest image xx
