Really scared?

Hi,

Please bare with me if I've posted this in the wrong place, I've never used this site before and I'm just really desparate for some help/advice.

I'm 19, I've been with my boyfriend for a year and a half and all this time I've been on both the contraceptive implant and the progesterone only pill (Cezerette although I think it's now called something else?) and have always still had periods although very irregular for example could sometimes last barely any time or sometimes weeks, could either be heavy or ridiculously light. Although my periods are weird in that sense I still always have them each month and I've learnt that they'll be slightly 'different' each time and have gotten used to it.
The last period I had ended on the 28th August and I haven't had one since. I haven't had any cramps or any signs that it's coming at all. It's completely out of character for me and I'm terrified as I still live at home with my family but are not close to them at all. I can't talk to anyone about it. I've taken 2 tests with my first urine in the morning but they've both been negative however I've seen that negatives can be wrong? I've told my boyfriend and he's supportive but obviously this isn't what we'be planned as we're both still at Uni. I don't know where to go from here, I haven't had a period and I don't know why if I'm showing negative? Is there any reason anyone can suggest as to why or somewhere where I can go to talk to someone that's confidential? I'm seriously worried and I don't think the stress is making the situation any better. I also have epilepsy so my parents still manage my hospital/doctors closely so that's probably not an option that could work for me 😢

Any help would be hugely appreciated 😔

How long have you been on cerezette? I take it and sometimes don't bleed for months. If the tests are negative you probably aren't pregnant.

Go to your doctor. They should be keeping everything confidential.

Hi, I've had the implant 2 years, only had 1 full blown period, heavy, cramps, sickness, and 3 months with spotting so light i could go all day with a liner with barely any traces, the rest of the time, no period and no signs of it. It's completely normal to miss periods with the implant, even if you usually have a pattern whilst on it. The doctor only has the same pee on a stick/dip a strip in urine tests as the chemists, and false negatives are incredibly rare, if you've done multiple tests i really wouldn't worry.

Hi - I took cerazette while at uni and stopped having periods on them. I would occasionally get very light bleeds for a few days but nothing regular. Based on my experience, not having periods is totally normal and nothing to worry about when taking hormonal contraceptives. Sorry to hear you are so stressed - I think it's unlikely you're pregnant but take another test in a few days if you think it could have been a false negative.

Going to your doctor is completely confidential - even if your parents usually go with you.

Are you away at uni now? If so then the student support services should be able to advise you, or perhaps the campus doctors surgery? They should be able to help and be supportive of your situation.

If you go to uni near home or are at home, then book an appointment at your regular GP (could request a female one if you think that would help you more)

Sorry you're so stressed, hope you find support flowers

(I've just thought you could also google for your local family planning clinic too)

I really hope you get the news you want. I think if you've had 2 negative tests then it's unlikely you're pregnant.

Good luck xx

I agree with the previous comments, you need to speak to someone , the university should have a support officer who can help you. I was on the pill and often had a month when I missed a period, especially if you were irregular before you started. Two negative tests with morning wee probably means you're most likely not, but do test again in a week.
