When should I expect my period?

“I stopped taking my pills last month because I didn’t have a refill. I had intercourse twice but used a condom effectively both times. It is now a little over a month later and I haven’t yet started my period. When should I expect my period to start? When you say normal periods, does that include having a period at all?”

A: “Since you recently stopped using the pill, your cycle will be delayed. If you do not start your period in the next one to two weeks or if you do not get your period at all, you may want take a pregnancy test. Continue using condoms effectively each time you have intercourse.”
