I'm having a problem with my period.
Alrighty... Well, my period is late. I am on the pill, however, I missed two this month [Eek!] . I thought maybe, "Oh, wow, I'm pregnant", so, I took an at home pregnancy test. It came out negative. So, now I'm not sure what the problem could be.
I really want to figure this out, because I'm having a tonsillectomy next Tuesday, and I'm not sure if they'll perform the surgery if everything's kind of "out-of-sync."
Any ideas?

Thanks. [Eek!]

How long have you been on the pill? It took me 4-5 months before my cycle was really "regular" on it..and I know that varies by person. Also, missing a couple of pills could throw your body off, so that could explain the wonkiness too. I wouldn't worry too much if the pregnancy test was negative, its more than likely due to the missing pills.

Even if you're on the pill, stress can affect it. Stress over a pregnancy worry, and stress over an upcoming surgery can do that.

And your period or the pills won't make any difference for your tonsillectomy. It's at opposite ends of your torso. [Smile]
