I have been on birth control for a few years, but this month I left my pack at home when I went out of town. I normally start the pack on Sunday but I won't get back home until Saturday (day 7 of pill pack).
I didn't get my period this past month but home pregnancy tests came back negative and I haven't had any other pregnancy symptoms. I usually have very very light periods and I didn't take my birth control at the same time everyday this month so it's possible that I missed my period but am not pregnant.
I am wondering if starting my next pack a week late could result in another missed period. I would rather not have sex this month and get my period, than have sex with birth control and not get my period, just for my own sanity so I can be sure I'm not pregnant.
