    I'm on Noriday and it gave me a longer cycle. I knew when I was supposed to come on etc. According to my period tracker app I am now 18 days late (give or take) I have taken 2 pregnancy tests and they both came back negative. I had signs that my period was going to come (cramps, emotional etc) but it still hasn't come. I don't know if to book an appointment at the doctors or not just for them to tell me that the pill I'm on does not make me regular (although it's regulated my periods!) What should I do?

    How long have you been taking it for? It can take time for your body to settle into a pattern when you start a pill, if you're concerned then yes speak to a doctor but as it's a mini pill it might not give you a withdrawal bleed like combined pills can.

    If you're concerned, go speak to your doctor, it could be that it doesnt suit you as well as it did when you started taking it.

    What should I do?
    What do you want to do?

    The two tests say you're not pregnant. Are you happy with this as a method of contraception or do you want to talk about other options?

    Turns out I got my dates incredibly wrong and I'm only 5 days late. I'm happy with taking the pill because if I need to stop it at any time I can do... I've had bad experiences with the pill before so having something inside my body wouldn't be good for me (well I don't think it would anyway)
