Your question is:

If you have finished the first 21 days of your birth control pill on Saturday and today is Wednesday but you are not on your period yet why is this?

If you've just started taking birth control pills then this is probably why your period hasn't arrived. It's quite common to miss a period during the first month of taking birth control pills.

If you've missed any pills then this will also effect your cycle. Your period will arrive anytime during the 7 day break.

If you mean every day then yes, but starting it you only start taking the first pill of that pack a week after you took the one from your last pack, for example: You finished your first pill pack on Wednesday, your period arrives on Saturday, whether your period has finished or not by the following Wednesday then you start your second pill pack You don't have to take it on the first day of your period again, but you do have to take it every day like the first packet

Of course it is a possibility..but I wouldn't worry about it yet. I am currently using the Nuva Ring....when I take it out on Sunday I do not get my period until Wednesday and it is finished by Saturday. That is some of the perks to the Nuva Ring is that your period is light and short.

Lent starts every year on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday. While Lent is a 40-day period of fasting and prayer, there are 46 days from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday (inclusive).

I was about to post the same question. I'm a Sunday starter, so I should be getting it Wednesday, but instead I got it yesterday (Saturday), but I had missed Thursday and Friday. Is that the reason for the early period, and if so, does that mean I wont get it this coming Wednesday when I am supposed to get it?

It depends on what type of pill you are on. If it is a regular pill that lets your have periods monthly, then you most likely will have it Wednesday. If your're taking a birth control that makes you have your period a few times a year, then you probably will not have it Wednesday.

it depends on what kind of birth control you are on. talk to your doctor. some you start the day you start your period some there is a set day to start the pack

I have been on birth control for a month now. I have finished a pack and still have not had a period. What else can I do?

You should call your doctor to get clarification of how to take your birth control pills. Birth control pills are supposed to be started on the Sunday after your period begins.

Yes, a woman can get pregnant directly after her period. Unless you want to get pregnant you should always use birth control.

No because if your period is finished, then you can no longer bleed until your next period.

Do a pregnancy test. If you missed pill or took too many this can also delay your period.

Yes. Wednesday is a proper noun and an abstract noun for a period of time. You cannot physically see or touch a Wednesday.

That's the most likely scenario, although you may have unscheduled bleeding or spotting after skipping your period.

It will vary from person to person, but generally late Monday through late Wednesday will be the start.

Well I'm on the pill and I start my period pills (white pills) on the Saturday and sometimes I won't get it till Wednesday. On average it's usually Tuesday before I get it. But everyone may be different

Lenten is from Ash Wednesday to Easter.

Ash Wednesday is the first day of lent - a period of 40 days before Easter (not including Sundays). Easter is always on a Sunday, and therefore Ash Wednesday is always on a Wednesday. In 2009 Ash Wednesday is on Wednesday 25th February.

The next Sunday. __________________________ With Sunday start, you're supposed to start on the Sunday of getting your period, or the following Sunday. For example: You start your period on Sunday : START YOUR BC. You start your period Wednesday... WAIT TIL SUNDAY TO START. **make sure to read the inserts that come with your birth control, or go to the manufacturers website, the information is there for a reason!

The abbreviation is Wed. (with a period)

You can try it, but you may have irregular bleeding rather than no bleeding. Put the patch on now for the best chance.
