My last period was last Sept.17, 2013 ended on Sept. 23, 2013. I'm supposed to have my next period last Oct. 17, 2013. The 19th comes and still nothing so I thought i was late and i thought it is safe to have sex, so we did it on the night of 19th. Withdrawal method, my boyfriend didn't come inside me. He pulled out even before he feels it. I drank 2pcs Althea Pills after the deed knowing it can prevent pregnancy. But its almost the end of the month and i still don't have my period. I don't feel any symptoms of pregnancy either. I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative last Sunday, October 27 and my boobs got swollen but this usually happens when my period is about to arrive. im still taking the pills until this very day. is it just the effect of the pill? or im just stressed? please help :(
Please don't abbreviate pregnancy test as PT, as there is a test for something else that is called that. Withdrawal method can't be counted on as birth control. Now that you took the pills your period can be late from that. Wait a few days, then do a pregnancy test, first thing in the morning when you just get out of bed. That's when the hormone it tests for would be highest. If its still negative see a dr. Something else could be wrong.
Oh honey that is not how you use Althea... You're supposed to take it every day to prevent pregnancy. You have to because the way it prevents pregnancy is by forcing your body to release certain hormones and make it think you're already pregnant, thereby making you less fertile. Usually doctors recommend you wait at least a week of taking this pill (time for it to take effect) before having sex without a condom.
