I am 18 years old and I have been on 100mg of Spiractin a day, as well as 10mg of Roaccutane twice a week for acne. I went to a new dermatologist about two weeks ago and she prescribed Yaz, suggesting that I quit Spiractin and use the Roaccutane only as necessary. She also told me to start the birth control as soon as my next period starts. I immediately stopped using the Spiractin, which is said to help keep your period regular.
My periods were regular for about a year: since I started using Spiractin. I would get a period every 25 days. My period was supposed to be on the 25th of September, but it still hasn't arrived.
I'm still a virgin, but engage in mutual masturbation with my boyfriend. We're always careful, making sure to wash our hands etc. I'm probably just paranoid, but I'm worried since my period is a week late.
I've been having headaches for about three days and noticed a lot of white discharge at the time my period was supposed to come and I still have it. Could I be pregnant? Or is my period just late because I quit my medication and because of stress? I have also been sick for the last week (just the common cold) and read somewhere that it could delay your period.
And should I start using the birth control now, or just assume I skipped a period and wait for the next one to come?
REALLY worried, please help!
