After about 4 months of use, I stopped taking them because of the fact that I could just never seem to remember to take them. I missed a whole week and instead of waiting and starting over after my period I decided to talk to my doctor about switching to the patch. Only one small problem. I'm 2 weeks late. I did have sex while I was still actively taking the pill and I was about mid cycle. I've taken 2 first response pregnancy tests, both which came up negative. Only the thing is, I've been pregnant twice and miscarried. Both times, different take home pregnancy tests came up negative. I had coincidentally had an exam within a few weeks after I had my "period"--in which I bled like a stuck pig for days and days--on both occassions. My doctor had informed me that I had actually miscarried (blue tinted cervex or something?). So I don't trust urine tests anymore. Will going off the pill cause your period to be this late? I have to make an apointment with my doctor but don't have access to a car until next week. I was just hoping someone could help ease my mind until then.
