Alright so, I got on birth control around September/October (about a month after my boyfriend and I started having sex). On my BC, my period has always come on a Friday, and always in the morning. It's now the afternoon and it hasn't come yet, so I'm getting a little worried. We always have unprotected sex and he usually finishes inside me, which is why I wanted to get on the BC in the first place. The last time we had sex was around 4 days ago, and the time before that maybe two weeks ago, because I was gone for two weeks and just got back to our apartment. I'm having my lower back pains like I usually do before/during my period... it's just that it's not here yet.

I thought I'd go and get some at home pregnancy tests and use one today and then in a few days. Am I just freaking out for no reason at all or what?

It takes the body about three months to get used to the hormones in the pill. If I understand correctly, this is your third month on the pill? If so, I'd not worry overly much about a little irregularity.

Besides, even if you'd been on the pill for a while, a withdrawal bleed that's late by a few hours isn't late at all. Withdrawal bleeds don't usually work like clockworks that precisely. As long as they show up at some point during the withdrawal week, you're fine.
