no periods
Hi dr

i had a miscarriage early july, i then started using the pill Norinil a week later. Im surprised becos i havent had my periods.

Could i be pregnant or is the body still adjusting itself?

I was also adviced to stop taking the contraceptive coz it might interfere with my falling pregnant again??

What is ur advice?

Have you finished the inactive pills in the pack yet? Your period should start then. It can sometimes be delayed after a miscarriage though. You will obviously not fall pregnant while on the Pill, but it will not interfere with falling pregnant once you stop it.
