Could I be pregnant?

I've been on the birth control pill (the one I'm on is supposed to be 99.9% effective) for three years or so. On Saturday evening I had s** without a condom. Out of a 28-day card, Saturday was the first day of my 'inactive' pills. The leaflet in the pack says I should be protected, but my period was supposed to start today and it hasn't yet.

I should be protected, there are plenty of reasons for a "missed" or late period, stress (which I have been under) et cetera... But I'm too terrified to go and get a pregnancy test. I thought I was doing the right thing by being on the Pill- I've never had a problem before. I take it every day consistently.

I'm panicking. I'm 22, almost 23, so I'm old enough to take care of a child responsibly, but I AM NOT READY. I don't have it in me to have an abortion. I'm so frightened.

  • Don't worry! My gf has been late quite a few times and we use condoms all the time. She was late by 11 days once for no reason. I was horrified the entire time and fearing the worst...don't worry. You're young so your period isn't gonna be 100% on time, all the time.
