I'm on birth control and EVERY month I have a period...even before birth control I wasn't lucky enough to skip a period. Well, my placebo week of pills was last week and I didn't have a period at all. Last month during my pack of pills I spotted for a week and then during my placebo week, I had a period. So essentially the period lasted 2 weeks.
I was due to start on Wednesday, May 8 and I took a test last night and it was negative. Am I testing too early or could my system be messed up from last months weird period?
