So, my last period was April 24th. At that time I was on the pill but stopped because I had misplaced the following months pack. My last pill was probably the day after. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years and have never had this scare. Sometimes we have sex and we start off without a condom but he ALWAYS puts one on when he knows things are gonna get a little faster. The point is he always has a condom on when he ejaculates. So my period was suppose to come between May 16-24 since my periods are either 20 to 30 days apart. It's been a little more than two weeks. Can getting off the pill make this huge gap between periods? on the pill my periods were a month apart and light. I've been having REALLY painful cramps for the past 4 days but nothing. Usually when i have a cramp i get my period the next day. And these cramps, are like i said, painful and my cramps are usually never this bad. Can stress also cause this? I need someone to tell me something before i get a test.

This could be from stopping the pill, however, best bet right now is for you to A) get and take a test, because what you're describing does pose a risk of pregnancy, and B) call to see if you might be able to get in to see a doctor given the cramps are so bad may just be better to have things checked out.

Also, did you mention to your doctor you were going off for the month because of a lost pack? They likely could have worked something out to get you another pack, and it's always wise to talk with a doctor before stopping a medication (and will be important you talk with them before beginning the pills again if planning to).

my doctor did give me a new pack but they wanted me to wait til my next period to start on them.

this all was also a false alarm since i did start my period today, it's just really strange that my period was 3 weeks late.
