    Here is the story

    My girlfriend is taking the pill, not sure which type, but its the one where you can delay periods.

    She has delayed her last period because she was going on holiday which was about 6 weeks ago, and recently she has stopped taking the pill so she can come on her period.

    However, she experienced period pains for about 2 days, and hasn't come on her period yet, and is due to start taking the pill again on 8th july.

    Does this mean she is pregnant??

    Do you mean 8th June? She shouldn't be taking over a month's break! If she's been taking the pill properly then chances of pregnancy are low, but if she's concerned she needs to take a test.

    Did you know that they make these handy tests that you can pee on and it'll tell you if your pregnant these days?

    It's an absolute revolution in science and is EVEN MORE EFFECTIVE than asking strangers on an internet forum.

    Crazy times we live in eh?

    That will be a combined pill, one with both oestrogen and progesterone.

    She has delayed her last period because she was going on holiday which was about 6 weeks ago, and recently she has stopped taking the pill so she can come on her period.

    However, she experienced period pains for about 2 days, and hasn't come on her period yet, and is due to start taking the pill again on 8th july.

    Any change in hormonal contraception can affect a woman's cycle, as can stress about being pregnant. This is very probably what's happening here.

    The obvious thing for her to do if she's worried is to take a pregnancy test. (Own brand / pound shop ones are much cheaper than the big names.) But it's very unlikely: when taken properly, combined pills are very reliable.

    The obvious thing for you to do if you're worried about her becoming pregnant is to use condoms as well as any contraception she uses.

    I missed out a break once because of going on holiday and then stopped having periods altogether when i started my breaks again, I know a lot of people stop having their periods on the pill and it can be quite common.I changed pills because it freaked me out a bit and now its back to normal.Get her to do a pregnancy test just incase
