Patient : I have been on the pill for over three years and am at university, in November I ran out of pills and so thought rather than prescribing to a new doctor I would wait a month until I was home and could get more. I'm fairly sure I should have had my period this week but it's late and I'm worried I may be pregnant. I have been using condoms with my partner but there has been sexual contact before putting it on which worries me. The last time we had sex was a week ago so I'm confused about when to do a test, should I wait until two weeks after I last had sex or should I test now because my period's late?
