No Period on Placebo Pills - Am I pregnant?


Q: Hello.
I believe I'm in trouble, and I have been a nervous wreck for the past four days because of it. I have been using birth control pills for two months. My boyfriend and I have had sex, and my period came afterwards during the placebo week, as expected. However, this month, I am on my fourth day of placebo pills, and I haven't had a period. My boyfriend and I have NOT have vaginal sex since then, but we have engaged in oral. With this being said, is their a possibility I may be pregnant? I am very scared, and I pray maybe it's an adjustment to the Birth Control pills, but I thought I'd be smart to contact you. Help me. :(

Symptoms:  Anxiety and nervousness.
