Hi, No never skip to sugar pills when this happens or it will throw your cycle off completely. Continue to take the pills as prescribed. So take the active pills and then the sugar pills when it is time.

That would mean stopping your pills a week early, no that is not a good idea, you could ovulate and get pregnant.

With the traditional birth control pill you take a cycle of pills every day for 21 days and then 7 days of sugar pills. In the 7 days of the sugar pills you have a period.

Can you be pregnant if you missed two pills before your period and still get your period a day later?

If you got your period, you're 99.9% not pregnant. A period is essentially a 'missed opportunity' at getting pregnant. If the two pills you missed were the last two pills of the month, it just means your period came early because you stopped the cycle a little early. No big deal. ________________________________________________________ I disagree with this, because if she had sex close to her period...then she could very well still be pregnant, because it takes really a week for the egg to get fertilized or whatever, so within that time she could have her period because she technically isn't pregnant yet. but if she missed 2 pills, she might have had her period because she missed the caused a disturbance in the cycle so it brings on a period.

Your doctor put you on birth control pills so you can have a period how long will it take to have a period?

When do you get your period when you get no placebo pills?

Depends on your natural cycle. The first three months, you may have irregular spotting/ bleeding, but it should regulate after about 12-14 weeks. If you naturally have a pretty regular cycle, then you should get your period every 28-30 days or so. If not, unfortunately, it can be very unpredictable. Estrogen pills with placebo (sugar) pills, help to regulate the menstrual cycle. Progesterone-only, on the other hand, will not regulate your period. There are several websites and apps that can help you track your cycle, so maybe participating in period-tracking can help you predict when your next period will begin.

Can you start your period when your birth control pills are half way done?

if you stop taking your birth control pills at any time through out your cycle, you will bring on your period. * if you miss a day this can also bring on a short period* some pills take a few months (avg is 3months) for your menstrual cycle to become accustomed to forced change. This can result in irregular periods and spotting (short light periods). After 3 months your cycle should have adjusted. If you are bleeding after this much time in mid cycle (according to yr pills) without missing pills contact your doctor. the hormonal dose of the particular pills you are on may not be working with your body.

In some birth control brands, the green pills are active pills and should not be skipped. In other brands, the green pills are placebos (sugar pills or reminder pills) and can be skipped.

If you skip active pills, your period will be early and you increase the risk of pregnancy. If you skip placebo pills, your period will be delayed.

When do you get your next period after taking the contraceptive pill?

It really depends on the sort of pill you are taking. A lot of pills say to start taking the first tablets on your first day of bleeding meaning your next period will be three weeks later and then four weeks every cycle after that. If you just started taking it in the middle of your cycle, you should not bleed until the first "sugar" pill you take three weeks later. If it is a low dosage pill, your normal cycle may still come for the first month. Hello there - When you take birth control pills you should get your period when your taking the sugar pills for seven days. During them seven days you will get your period. When you take morning after pill you can get a early period like bleed, experience spotting or have a very delayed period.
