I am not sure why you are concerned about pregnancy as you have not missed a period. If you have taken the Pill correctly, pregnancy is extremely unlikely. If you have fallen pregnant this month, the earliest you would be able to have an accurate result from the pregnancy test would be a day or two after your expected period, i.e. around the 22nd.

Best wishes

If you are using a contraceptive, you will not fall pregnant.

Pregnancy tests are only reliable at the expected date of you period. If my calculations are corrent you had sex just after your period stopped, it is unlikely that you conceived at that time, I was on triphasil as well used it for 3 years and did not fell pregnant.

Hope this helps
