I'd start by consulting your doctor.

You have a lot of options, but since you've never used birth control, you need to become familiar with the basics (method advantages/disadvantages, regimens used for period control, etc.). This helps you pick the method that best fits your needs.

I'd read Take Control of Your Period, by Diana Kroi MD, and talk to my Ob/Gyn.

To give you an idea: You use a birth control method with hormones, like the pill, patch, or the vaginal ring, on a period control regimen. These methods allow you to actively control the frequency of the fake period (withdrawal bleeding). Or, you can use a method like the shot, the implant, or the hormone-releasing intrauterine device (IUD) to passively delay your period.

For example, with the pill, instead of taking 3 weeks of active pills (pills with hormones), followed by one week of placebo pills ("sugar" pills), you take the active pills for 6 weeks, followed by one week off. Or, with the vaginal ring, instead of 3 weeks with the ring, followed by one week without, you leave it in for 4 weeks, change it for a new one at the end of the month, and repeat for two more months. After the third month, you leave the ring out for one week.

If you want to delay your menstral cycle, you should get pregnant.

The menstrual cycle is the reproductive cycle, unless a woman is pregnant or on hormonal birth control then during her reproductive years she is always in her menstrual cycle. A woman can have sex at any point in her menstrual cycle as long as she uses birth control.

The average menstrual cycle length is 28 days - but everyone is different. As a note while on birth control pills you don't have a menstrual cycle, the pill works by suppressing your menstrual cycles so you no longer ovulate.

Yes. When you start taking birth control pills, your menstrual cycle will usually change. It will become lighter and less irregular. But when you start the pill, your menstrual cycle has to get use to the changes, and will start your cycle early because it will now be different because of the birth control pills. Your periods might be irregular the first couple of times after starting the pill

HiYour question is:If you mess up on birth control can that delay your menstrual cycle?Yes messing up on birth control can delay your menstrual cycle and it can also put you at risk of pregnancy if you've been sexually active in conjunction with missing a pill or several pills.

Yes. Stress and other factors can impact your cycle.

Your period usually comes during the placebo pills week(sugar pills).

Birth control has many benefits. The two big ones are to Prevent pregnancy and to control your menstrual cycle.

Birth control inhibits fertilization, not menstruation. Menstrual cycle will still continue.

You can not stop a menstrual cycle without removing your ovaries. Some birth control pills allow you to skip periods, but this does not stop the cycle.

User Avatar

They do not affect the menstrual cycle itself, however, they WILL affect your birth control (decreasing the effectiveness), which CAN effect your menstrual cycle. You can get pregnant or have changes in your menstrual cycle as if you had missed a week or so on your pills.

User Avatar

you will get your period when you start taking your "period" placebo pills in your pack

User Avatar

You can use your calendar or the birth control pill package.

User Avatar

If you're taking the birth control pill correctly, irregular bleeding is not a sign of decreased effectiveness.

Birth control has a number of objectives. These include: 1. Preventing pregnancy 2. Regulating the menstrual cycle 3. Acne treatment 4. Other medical treatments (such as problems associated with an irregular menstrual cycle)

If you are a female then you are always in your menstrual cycle. The term 'menstrual cycle' is another word for the reproductive cycle, women are essentially always within this cycle - although it can be thrown off-balance, when a woman is pregnant, or suspended by hormonal birth control.

Taking Orovite has absolutely nothing to do with your menstrual cycle. If your menstrual cycle is regular then it will continue to be regular while taking this.

To stop your menstrual cycle from starting, you can consider getting on birth control. It would also be a wise idea to maybe consider an IUD.
