What would you like to do?
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.

Thanks for the feedback!
You dindt start taking your birth control pills until the 2nd Tuesday after your period Will you still get your period after you take the first 21 pills?
Answer Hello. You will get your period after the 21 days. There is a 7 day break in the pills - this is when you will get your period. Or …no later than a week after the 7day break. It will be around 4 weeks exactly after you started taking BCP.
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.
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.
What is wrong if you have your period for two weeks and just started to take birth control pills I am not regular and my doctor gave me birthcontol pills to regulate me.?
Truly, the birth control pill doesn't regulate a period. It replaces your natural cycle with its own cycle of no bleeding and bleeding. Unless something else in your body chan…ges, you are likely to return to your previous menstrual pattern once you go off the pill. That said, you may have irregular, unscheduled bleeding in your first three months on the pill. After that, you should settle into a more predictable pattern. Some women think the pill will guarantee that their period always arrives on, say, every fourth Tuesday. That may happen, but it's not likely to be that regular. If after three months you're still experiencing breakthrough bleeding, or if it's troublesome in the first three months, contact your health care provider to discuss the possibility of changing to a pill with a different hormone profile.
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.
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.
The sugar pills basically don't have any hormones such as progestin and ethinyl estradiol which allows you to have your period. The sugar pills are normally taken on the 4…th week of your birth control cycle. You don't need to take the sugar pills as guided because either way you will have a period with or without talking the sugar pills on the 4th week. The sugar pills also keeps you on a schedule when on a birth control pill since many do not take them responsibly which may result in an unplanned pregnancy. You can also skip the sugar pills and go right into your next pack of active pills and just have no periods. Read Malcolm Gladwell's "John Rock's Error" and that is what seasonale and lybrel are (skipping placebos)
It's not a period, it's a withdrawal bleed and it only happens because you stop taking your pills. You can just as easily go straight from one pack to the next without a break…. This is more reliable and you never have any periods.
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.
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.
First, remember that you can get pregnant even if you take the birth control pill perfectly. If you're on the combination pill, taking it a few hours early or late won't m…ake a big difference. If you're on the progestin only pill, it's critical that you take it at the same time. Contact your pharmacist or health care provider for advice specific to your situation. It is much better to stick to a particular time of day for taking the pill--you are much less likely to miss it or skip it. Missed pills can lead to their being less effective and increases your chances of getting pregnant. Changing to a method that doesn't require you to do something daily will give you better protection against pregnancy. In addition, you can use a phone alarm or a reminder system like bedsider or ICYC to remind you to take your birth control pill each day.
