There is no medical concept of birth control pill rejection, but some women may have changes in their periods on one birth control pill that they don't like. Changing to another brand may help.

My friend has been switching back and forth between the b.c. that makes you have periods every three months and Ortho and her last period lasted twelve days with lots of cramps. Her doctor recently had her take two regular pills of Ortho for four days.. then her bleeding stopped and he adviced her to stay with Ortho!

The birth control patch normally makes a woman's period shorter and lighter. This change happens with all hormonal birth control.

If you get your period while on birth control, you should continue using your birth control as scheduled. Bleeding does not change the schedule for taking your pill or changing your patch or ring.

It's possible that changing birth control pills will change the timing of your next period.

There is no condition in which the body "rejects birth control." You may have experienced side effects from one or more methods of birth control, and these have medical terms. You may have experienced birth control failure, and could guess that the cause, which may have a scientific name. But there is no recognized medication condition in which the body "rejects birth control." If you like, write again with a more specific description of what you mean by "rejection," and I'll help you find a word.
