I have been taking ortho tri cylcen lo for abt 4 months now and I usually start my period on the first day I take a green pill now here it is the third day I've taken a green pill and still no period. Could I be pregnant

If you have taken a pill every day without a miss and havent been on antibiotics without using a back up then it is very unlikely you are pregnant. On occasion, a woman on the Pill may have a lighter period, just spotting or no period at all. You may yet start, too. Many women dont start until the third or fourth day of inert pills. At four months on the Pill, your body will begin settling into the rhythm provided by the Pills hormones, not your own-your own will have synchronized with the Pills. No worries! If you would miss two periods in a row, then you should take a pregnancy test. I'm betting that you will still start today or tomorrow. Expect periods to be lighter and like I said, some women just spot a bit and thats all the period they have while on the Pill. That is one of the nice side effects of the Pill!
