I'm 22, sexually active (last had sex, protected, on the 14th February) and went to the doctors last Tuesday (16th Feb) to start on the combined pill. I've been told/read the packet to start my first pill on the first day of my period. So I waited...and I have not started them.
I was due to start my period on Sunday, but it is now Thursday and there's nothing.
I'm feeling all my usual signs; pains in the back and abdomen and sometimes contraction type pains quite deep. Also it's a bit strange, but I've had this sort of...churning coming from my lower stomach and even now it's becoming uncomfortable with the what seems like cramps; but there's no bleeding, no sign of it at all.
I had the same delay with my period before last and was so frightened that I went out and brought a double pack of pregnancy tests. I used one about two days after my period was due and it was negative, but then I started the day after.
I took my other test yesterday for this period and it was negative again.
Am I just stressing about this too much and anxious to start my pack and this is just delaying my period?
