Lady Trust Pills

I have finished my pack of pills for a week now, but still i dont have my period... I used a PT after 4 days of finishing off my last pill and its negative. What could be the problem? Am i possibly pregnant? Should i start a new pack of lady pills? ## Did you miss any pills, at all? If not, then the chances of your being pregnant are not very high.

There is actually no harm in missing your time of the month, many women use birth control to do it on purpose, when it would be inconvenient t...
