I just started birth control pills and this is my second month on them but I am two days late. I've been very stressed out the past few months but I also had sex a few weeks ago, though protected I am still worried. I am having period like symptoms but I'm still scared. I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant but I just want peace of mind but I cannot get a pregnancy test. Please help xc I am also 16.
I'm 2 days late but use BCPs & I had sex a little over 2 weeks ago but used a condom is this normal?

The birth control I'm on is Lo Loestrin Fe. I also refuse to have any sort of relation without a condom. I also urinate after sex always just to get anything out. I'm very worried about this please help.
I'm not sure what urinating has to do with potential pregnancy. As long as you are taking your pills correctly you have less then a one percent chance of pregnancy. I'm not sure what you're using to determine lateness but when on the pills you can get your period any time during the week you are on the inactive pills.
Urinating after sex, while it is a good thing for your bladder to avoid bladder infections because it clears out any gunk that is driven up the urethra from friction during sex, will NOT help you in any way from becoming pregnant! The bladder and the uterus are two completely different organs and they are not connected to one another so urinating after sex doesnt clear any sperm from the vagina or uterus. That being said, as long as you have been taking your birth control pills regularly without any misses then chances are so very small for pregnancy, less than 1% with just the Pill alone-add condoms to that and it is virtually impossible (but never say never-it can still happen in just the right circumstances but it would be very very rare). Stress will delay your period. If you get this frightened from having sex then it makes one wonder if you are mature enough to be having sex. You are doing everything you can do to prevent a pregnancy. If one occurs with all the protection you put in place then it was meant to be. If you are going to be mature enough to have sex then you must also be mature enough to handle the consequences-perhaps you are not ready and there is nothing wrong with that-you have your whole life ahead of you and there is no reason to rush into sex too early. Sex too early can affect your whole sex life for the rest of your life in a negative way. No matter what you do, no method is 100% except for abstinence. I admire you for not letting penetration happen even though you are on the Pill. It shows you are a responsible girl. Just be sure you are ready emotionally and not letting others pressure you into having sex before you are ready, whether it be your male partner, or pressure from your other girlfriends who are sexually active. I truly dont think you could be pregnant if you have taken all these precautions! No worries! :)
