My girlfriend has missed her period (supposed to happen last monday but still hasn't happened) - shes on the pill and has taken a pregnancy test too to make sure and it came back negative, but she's supposed to take the pill again starting today - does she start it again or not?

Cheers

Yes, I would suggest she start taking them again when she normally would, so to still be protected from pregnancy. I would however recommend doing another pregnancy test in a week, how long has she been on the pill? If shes only just started missing a period is fine, but if shes been on it a while another test should definitely be done, and perhaps a doctors visit if she misses her next period also

When I was on the pill, my periods stopped all together - not having periods is supposed to happen? Was she not told this when she purchased the pill?
(Is this the pill you take for three weeks, take a week off? If so, how long has she been taking it?)

Yeah she's on the pill whereby she's on for 3 weeks and off for one where she has a period type bleed, and shes been on it for over a year now

Yes, take it.

A test will show whether or not she's pregnant (very probably not...)

Different women get different things happen to their periods when taking the pill, including different things at different times. If she's had exams etc, stress is notorious for delaying / stopping periods too.
