Well, I had my period last month like usual and stopped

Customer Question

Well, I had my period last month like usual and stopped taking the pill right after. My period is 3 days late now, but I am experiencing symptoms for 4 days like I am about to menstruate such as heartache, bloating, low back pain, and abdominal cramping but I'm not. I know pregnancy might be a possibility, but could this be because I stopped taking the pill?
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: I wouldn't say pain. Just uncomfortable. They have been pretty regular.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, no past medical history.

Hello and welcome. I'm Dr Chip

Are you saying that after your last period you stopped the pill entirely?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
My pack was completed. I had my period, and then I did not restart after my last period ended.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 8 months ago.


Most likely this is just a delay in your period after stopping the pill

That said, at this point if you were pregnant a home pregnancy test should be positive.

Please let me know if you need any more information.
