So maybe it's not as MIA as I think.. But I'm not sure if it makes sense? I know I've been stressed out a little, and I've been switching BC pills to find one that I like and finally I've made up my mind to just switch back to loestrin.. well I just started reusing it last month and it's been a week today that I was done with that pack.. But I don't have a period yet.. I spoted a tiny bit of blood but hardly anything.. I've had TWO full periods since the last time I've had sex... So I'm wondering because I've been switching the pill a lot over the last few months, and am under stress this is why its happening? I really don't think I'm pregnant, because if I was I'm sure there would be signs by now since it's been three months. [Razz] so I'm just curious what other factors might cause my period to be MIA? Or does the BC pill sometimes take a week to kick in again?

Stress could definitely be a factor, and switching pills can throw your body out of whack too. And, sometimes it can take awhile for your body to get on track with withdrawal bleeds when starting (or re-starting) the pill.

Just keep taking your pills as usual, and if you still don't have a normal withdrawal bleed after another couple of cycles, talk to your doctor. Otherwise, just give your body a bit of time to settle into a pattern again.

Also, should I expect to get a period? or probably not since I'm about to take my fifth active pill of this pack?
