The skipping of the period while on the patch is common. The way the hormones are released, there's a chance your period will be late or, in some cases, even missed. Don't be too worried about it since you're on the patch AND using a condom regularly. But, if you are worried, go and buy a home pregnancy test just to make sure. And don't worry, Ortho Evra won't affect it.

Yes, you can! I had an ectopic pregnancy in 2001 and was worried I wouldn't be able to have a baby afterwards, because you are told that if you've had one ectopic, your chances of having another one greatly increase! Luckily for me, I went on to have a little girl; who is now 7!! So, if you've had an ectopic and you're worried it will happen again ... din't give up hope!

How many days past your period should you be worried?

Anything up to 7 days from when your period is due (determined according to your average menstrual cycle length - average length of your last six cycles) is considered normal. It's also normal if in your teens or approaching menopause for your cycles to be a little erratic. If you are sexually active and concerned about pregnancy then over 7 days is a reasonable time to start getting worried - you can take a pregnancy test from 2 weeks after you had sex, so if you're worried about pregnancy take a pregnancy test to ease your mind.

You have bleeding after 32 days of your cycle but it is different and less. How can you tell whether you are pregnant?

If 32 days is your normal cycle you may be just having a light period. If your cycle is normally shorter then you may be pregnant and just having a bit of spotting. Buy a home pregnancy test from the pharmacy and do a home pregnancy test with the first urine you pass in the morning. If it is negative and you still haven't had a normal period in a week do another test. If you are worried go to the doctor.
