Stopped Birth Control Pill – No period

“I am on the pills and previously if I stop taking the pills two or so days after my period would start this month I took it for about eight days or so and stop and my period havent come . Its about about eight days now.”

A: In order for birth control pills to be effective, they need to be taken every day and at the same time every day. If pills are taken irregularly, there is the possiblity that bleeding or spotting may occur. If someone hasn’t taken their pills correctly and has missed a period, then they could take a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy, or consult with their physician who prescribed the pills.
