me and my bf use the pill a contraception, he pulls out too but every so often it isnt on time, i was meant to start my withdrawl bleed last night but so far no sign, i'm getting pretty scared here.
is it too soon to worry cause its not even 12 hours late (but i've been taking my pills at the same time i do every month and its usually here earlier
given that i'm on the pill when is the soonest i can test?
any general advice on why it might be late if i werent pregnant?

Most women, including most women on the pill, experience some fluctuations in when their period or withdrawal bleed comes. One or two days is really completely normal. You can't expect a pregnancy test to be accurate until your bleed is definitely late, and I'd say that's another two or three days.

As for your other question, take a look at this: M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?
