What would you like to do?
If you take your birth control pills perfectly every time but still get your period on the hormone pills only and never on the sugar pills could something be wrong?
You probably need a different kind of pill. The one you are taking isn't the correct hormone dosage for you. Talk to your doctor and they will help you get the right one for your body. I'd say to use a back up method of birth control in the meantime, just to be safe.

What's wrong if your doctor changed your birth control pill to something stronger because you have had spotting your first month on this pill and you didn't get your period?
Answer Hi, Nothing is wrong hun. This does happen with a lot of women. Did the doctor rule out pregnancy by doing a urine test or a blood …test? Or both? If he didn't then you need to make sure your not pregnant. Apart from that, everything is perectly fine. Your doseage was changed because the doseage you was on before wasn't high enough for you and this caused the spotting.
You are on birth control and take every pill but you've been having cramping and light pink discharge could this be from skipping your period last month with the pills or could you be pregnant?
Answer You will probably find that this is your period "trying" to start. Your body is a little confused as it should've been allowed to bleed but hasn't …been given the signal to start as you skipped. Many low dosage pills don't have strength enough to allow you to skip and you will bleed anyway.
When on birth control pills are you supposed to take the sugar pills the full 7 days or start the white pills once your period is over?
birth control You should take the pills for 7 days to help you remember to take your pills, some of the pills that you take during your period depending on …your RX have iron in them, because our iron levels drop when we have our period. You need to take them like their prescribed even if you stop bleeding before their over.
If you've been on birth control pills Yaz for about 4 months and every time you get to the sugar pills there are 4 of them and your period always starts on the last one is this normal?
Yes it is normal. Mine always started on the last pill.
Should you continue taking birth control as normal if you get your period while still taking the active pills and finish your period before you take the sugar pills?
Yes continue taking your pills as normal. If this happens again perform a pregnancy test and see your DR about changing your BC pills.
You start your period when on the sugar pills. Your period should start within three days of your first sugar pill - the exact time will differ from woman to woman.
some people do but i however don't, i am a Sunday starter and i take my 1st sugar pill on a Sunday but i do not start my period until weds or thur
Yes, if you want to change it then doing so is easiest after your period week when you'r starting a new pill pack. So you can start over and change the time. I suggest calling… your doctor if you have any questions about your birth control.
You don't have to take the sugar pills, they are just there to help you keep track of when to start taking the next pack of pills. You could take all 7 of the sugar pill…s at one time if you wanted to. They have no effect on your body. They are only sugar. They have no purpose other than to help you keep track of time.
Yes, you will still have your period if you don't take the sugar pills. The pills have no effect on your cycle. They are like a place holder to keep you in the habbit of takin…g your pills at the same time every day.
You have irregular periods so im birth control and just finished the active pills and now taking the sugar pills and you still havent gotten your period is this normal?
I usually don't get my period till the second or third sugar pill. It's normal.
Yes you should still have a period. The sugar pills are there mostly so that you can stick to the same schedule every day. Also, if you don't start your hormone pills ba…ck after so many days (as many days as there are sugar pills) you have a higher chance of releasing an egg and then becoming pregnant next month. If you don't want to take the sugar pills, just make sure that you aren't late starting your next pack of pills! It also doesn't mater if you are still bleeding and it is time to start that next pack, do it anyway. And your period may not always start on the day that you are supposed to take the sugar pills, it can start anywhere within that week, so don't freak out too much if you are a day or so late.
Yes, but don't it more than twice in a row. It could mess you up if you do.
What do I do if when I come to the sugar pills in my birth control I don't have my period Do I still take the sugar pill or take a normal hormonal pill?
Take the inactive (sugar) pills, then start your next packet on time. Some pills, for some women will stop your period from ever coming, as long as you are taking the pill. Y…ou can use a HPT once your period is a week late, if it is negative it is safe to assume you are not pregnant and your periods have stopped from taking BCP. If you have any questions call you prescribing doctor or clinic.
There are many hormonal imbalances that can cause periods to be missing without the pill and present with the pill. The first weeks of pills in the pack can make hormone level…s more normal while you're taking them. Because the inactive pills contain no hormones, breakthrough bleeding will occur. Talk to your health care provider about the absent periods to find out if additional testing is suggested to learn why you only have bleeding when you're on birth control pills. And keep using a reliable method of preventing pregnancy until the time you're ready to get pregnant. Even women who have rare periods can get pregnant. There is no medical reason to have monthly bleeding while taking BCP - your health care provider can tell you how to take your pills so bleeding stops completely.
What happens if you take one sugar pill of your birth control and skip the rest and still have a light period?
As long as you start your next packet on or before the date you were scheduled to start, skipping the sugar pills does not change the effectiveness of using the pill. You may …be asking about starting the next pack early. You can do so, but the timing and amount of bleeding you have is a bit unpredictable. This may be the situation about which you're asking. Lastly, if it's your first pack of birth control pills, you may have choice noticed that hormonal birth control like the pill can make your period lighter than it was without the pill.
When you start your period do you stop taking the hormone pills and start taking birth control pills again?
It depends with the reason you were taking the hormone pills in the first place, if you were on them because you missed your periods and they were supposed to regulate them, i…ts safe you only stick to those hormonal pills for the time being. Hormonal pills and birth control pills both contain synthetic versions of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone that work to change the way your natural body hormones work so that your body responds to normal functions; ovulation/ pregnancy. So since both of them are hormone changing pills, they have different functions which could mess up your body in a drastic and unhealthy way. So, see a doctor just to make sure if you can, just Incase the kinds of pills you are taking are not high in estrogen.
