It depends on the type of pill you are taking, mine says you can take it up to 5 days after the firsdt day of your period; however if you have a short cycle of 23 days you can wait up to three days. :)

Your period will arrive anytime during the 7 day break.

If you don't start the birth control pill on the first day of your period, you need to use a backup method of birth control for the first seven days. After you've taken the pill correctly for seven days, you can rely on it for preventing pregnancy.

The normal menstrual cycle is ovulation 14 days after your period. The first period post-partum can occur any time and birth control methods should be used.

Yes, 4 days of birth control can cause an irregular period as the birth control messes up your hormones and throws your body's natural rhythm out of whack.

yes you can. birth control in any for is going to redirect your cycle to 28 days no matter what. but if you want you period to come 3 weeks from your regular period( when you are on birth control you will not have a period, it is called withdrawal bleeding. because you don't ovulate while on birth control. withdrawal from the hormone causes the bleeding.) so actually you can choose when you"period" comes. hope this helps!!!

Not a problem...just use a back up method of birth control for the first seven days of that cycle.

For that first cycle, you should use a back up method of birth control, like condoms or abstinence from vaginal sex, for the first seven days.

It's usually normal. Your periods can be irregular sometimes when starting birth control and when you first get off of it. It happens to a lot of people including me. I wouldn't worry they eill get back to normal.

Not usually, but some women will have break through bleeding in the first 3 months.

Hormonal birth control lightens the amount of flow and reduces the number of days that you bleed. Any amount of bleeding counts as a period if you're on hormonal birth control.
