I was told that you usually regulate around 3 or 4 months. Last month my period didn't show up until Wednesday morning but I feel like it's been getting later and later every month. My boyfriend puts himself inside me without a condom but it's never for long and we always finish with a condom. I take my pill at 3 p.m. everyday. I seriously don't think I'm pregnant, but I could use some help.
As long as you're taking your pills like that, you don't need any other form of birth control. Its more then 99% effective. When you take your pills right, you don't even have to think about when you bleed. You are protected. Weird bleeding (for you) is not unusual. You will not necessarily have your period at the same time. your periods can be lighter and you can even skip a period now and then. This is because the pill decreases the amount of uterine lining you have so there is less to bleed. Never alter from your pill schedule because of bleeding or not bleeding.
You are wasting your time by allowing your boyfriend a few strokes then finishing with a condom. For one thing, men secrete sperm all throughout the sex act, not just when they ejaculate. The only reason to use condoms while on the Pill is to protect against STDs and if you are allowing him to penetrate without one at all, you are not even getting that protection. You dont need condoms while on the Pill unless you are protecting against STDs and to do so, you need to use condoms from start to finish, the other reason to use them is for back up protection for when you miss a pill. If you allow a naked penis in for a few strokes, you will expose yourself to sperm and possible pregnancy. The Pill was designed to be all the contraceptive protection you need. The Pill protects you from getting pregnant if you are using it correctly. Using a condoms only for part of sex is a wasted gesture. If you are using for STD protection, you expose yourself when you let him in for a few strokes and your pill is all the contraceptive you need. If you are going to use as back up, it should be on from start to finish, or dont use one at all. If you are going to allow him to penetrate, you might as well let him finish inside of you. Pulling out offers absolutely NO protection from pregnancy anyway so it is a wasted gesture.
It is not unusual to start your period on different days, you may not always start on the same day. You can expect it sometime during the week of inactive pills, it averages the 3rd or 4th day but it can be any day during that week.
