I have been taking Jolivette birth control for about 9 months now. I was very late to get my period the first 2 months i started the pill and then had normal periods for the rest of the months. I usually get my period on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd of every month and i never miss a pill! I may be an hour late taking it from time to time but i never entirely miss taking one.
I am about a week or so “late” to get my period this month and am still ovulating. The last time i had sex was one week ago from today(used a condom). Is there a possibility my period is just late or does this mean i am pregnant?
When you take the pill correctly YOU DO NOT OVULATE. That is how the pill works. It also causes less build up of uterine lining. This means that your period will be lighter and sometimes you may skip a period. There is less then a,1% chance that you are pregnant.
