I've been on BCP for about 4 and a half months and it had just started to regulate everything. I had sex with my boyfriend about a week before I was supposed to get my period. We used a condom but it broke. My period is now 2 days late. I can't tell if I've been having symptoms or if I'm just paranoid that I'm not getting any. Could I be pregnant?
If you have been taking the birth control pills as directed, daily, on time, etc. then you shouldn't be pregnant. Since you are 2 days late I suggest that you have a pregnancy test done just to rule out pregnancy.
What are you basing the late on? If you're doing one of those apps that keep track, they don't work well with someone on the pill. You're period can come at any time during the week you aren't taking active pills. The pill is 99% effective if you are taking them correctly, so you don't even need a condom for the prevention of pregnancy. You do not ovulate when on the pill, so you can't get pregnant.
