I had my last pill on the 27 Jan and then had my periods on the 01 Feb. I had a brown discharge for 3 days on the 23 Feb 2008. Today is the 10th March 2009 and still no periods. Did a test on the 06 March 2009 and it was negative.

Should I test again this Fri9day?

The brown discharge was probably a period. It can take a few months for your body to adjust to being off the Pill. If you were pregnant, the test would have been positive on the 6th.

Thank you for all the replies. I started with my periods last night, 16/03/2009. Can I still be pregnant then?

The same thing happened to me. I was on the pill, left it on the last week of November, I missed my period in DEC, i took a home pregnancy test, it was negative, I did a blood test and it was positive. 4 weeks pregnant. I am not 11 weeks. Chances are, you are pregnant. take a blood test

I have also stopped drinking the pill end of January. I had my last period end of February. On the 5th and 6th of March I did a home pregnancy test. Both negative. I was two weeks late on the 10th of March and took a blood test. Positive!! 4 Weeks pregnant.
