Dear Lybrate user, Not getting periods does not mean you are pregnant. Please get a pregnancy test done to confirm that you are pregnant. Some times your periods could be delayed due to various reasons.
Any medication shud b taken under a consultant advice. As there are many contraindications in some patients of a particular medication. For a contraceptive to work in first cycle it should b started on day 1 of menstrual cycle. It shud b taken regularly wid out any gap otherwise may cause breakthrough bleeding or ovulation which may lead to pregnancy. The contraceptive pill is not a indication of abortion you may continue pregnancy. The risks of abnormality are same as a normal woman.
