I started my 1st birth control, Seasonal, (the one that you only get 4 periods a year). Normally i have spotting thorough out my non period pills. I am now on my 4th day of my inactive pills, but i do not have my period :s i did sleep with someone recently, but he pulled out, and i was on my pills. i hadn't been on another pills so the pills should work. if my period doesn't come should i wait and then start the pills after i get my period? do you think i could be pregnant? or it could be the pills? also im 18, and this is my 1st time on any pill.

As long as you've been taking all of your pills properly (on time, none late or missed) then the chance of pregnancy is very low. You can take a pregnancy test if you like - that's often a great way to relieve stress about this - but it doesn't sound like you've had a significant risk.

Is this your first placebo period on this method of birth control? If so, know that it can take your body awhile to adjust, and it's very common for withdrawal bleeds (the "period" you get on the pill) not to start until a few days into your inactive pills. If you still haven't gotten your period by the end of the placebo pills and a pregnancy test comes back negative, start your next pack on time as you normally would - delaying the start of your next round of active pills will lessen the effectiveness and confuse your body even more.
