Question: Reasons for late period while on pill?

 Binkalette - Wed Nov 16, 2005 5:35 pm

I've been taking ortho tri cyclen lo since april '05. This month I had sex once right after my period, and he didn't do anything inside of me. Then on saturday (my periods supposed to start on sunday) I bled mostly brown but some red blood..not enough to fill a tampon.. And now it's not doing anything.. It's been a little brown..and that's it. Nothing.. Could it still be comming? Or is it just gonna skip or what? I'm so confused... :(

Ok..still no period..I took an EPT pregnancy test..It came back negative..just like I thought...So what could be causing this? Should I just not take the pill this month and wait for my period? Or should I just keep going?
