My boyfriend and I almost always have protected sex, however one night about three weeks ago, we didn't have protected sex. I have been on Orsythia for about 4 months now, and have taken it every day (maybe not at the exact same time everyday, but usually MAYBE 3 hours difference at most. I take it in the morning usually when I get up.) However, I am about 5 days late and am starting to become concerned. Again we are always safe and he says that everything was okay that night; however I'm beginning to grow concerned. Also, about 2 months ago, I just didn't have a period at all and I was on Orsythia. Is it possible to just not have a period sometimes, is it maybe because I am stressing about it also? My breasts are tender, and I'm moody and a little tired with some slight cramps like usual, I'm just not bleeding. Help, does this kind of thing happen?
You aren't ever unprotected while you take your pills correctly. You do need to make a better effort with the time. It is really important you take them 24 hrs apart. The hormones aren't in your body much more then 24 hrs. It is possible to skip a period now and then with birth control pills. Its if you miss 2 in a row that you worry.
