I started birth control to regulate my cycle, but now my period isn't arriving?? My last cycle started on April 29, I started taking Aubra on May 25, it is now June 6. I've been getting cramps, but no bleeding or even spotting. I was told I could start the pill the day that I received them, or the first Sunday of my cycle. I have no idea why I decided to start the pill the Monday of the week that I was SUPPOSED to start my period. Should I stop taking the pill? What's going on downtown?
