Re: Pregnant or late period? - September 26th 2013, 10:04 PM

Without having access to urine/blood tests, there is really nothing we can tell. However, I have heard from people who have taken the MAP that it does mess with your periods, but that is not included in my lexi-comp app. As you had cramping, I would wait about two more days and then retest.

You could also consider calling the writer of the prescription of the birth control and ask if you should start the pills now and treat it like a Sunday start (read the directions in the pill regarding a Sunday start versus a period start and any precautions you should take). They may recommend you come in for a urine pregnancy test or a serum pregnancy test before you start.

I would also familiarize myself with signs of ectopic pregnancy as that condition could be lethal.
