Patient : I started taking birth control pills the first week of February. I started the week of sugar pills last wednesday, but I still have not gotten my period. I have taken two home pregnancy tests and both have been negative. When I started the pills, I read the directions wrong and began taking them on the first day of my last period instead of the end of it. I'm wondering if my body is just adjusting to the changes or if I should be going to my doctor for a more thorough pregnancy test?
