There is no danger in skipping periods by skipping the placebo pills in your Birth Control pack, but this may result in bleeding between periods. When you get to the end of this pack, think about taking a break by taking your placebo pills - but don't take a break for longer than seven days. Then start the new pack. Some women note that if they take a short break of 4-5 days when spotting starts, then restart the pill, the spotting is more controllable.

Can you stop periods?

Periods are regulated by hormones in your body. They will continue to regulate and cause your periods, unless they are altered. Birth control can stop your periods. If the non-active pills at the end of your pack are skipped, and a new pack is started, the period will be skipped. Pregnancy will also cause your period to stop. Please see your doctor before attempting to alter your cycle in any way. Some birth control on the market today is designed to help you have fewer periods which could be an option if this is what you are looking for.

What could be wrong if you haven't had a period for 2 months but you're spotting?

Depends on your history. Do you typically have abnormal periods? As in, how common is it for you to skip a period? Have you lost weight or gained weight recently, that effects your periods. Are you under stress? Many things can effect this, also too, family history...But, just to be safe, I'd get a pregnancy test. I skipped a month and spotted one month and was pregnant. I am also very regular with my periods.

Is it possible to skip or regulate a period without being on birth control pills?

Not that I know of if you have skipped a period and pregnancy is a possibility get an at home test or make an appointment with your doctor ASAP the sooner you find out the better for you and the baby....Also if you are having irregular periods go toy our doctor just to see what can be causing them if your not pregnant...have you recently lost or gained a significant amount of weight? Have you been under an insane amount of stress lately...These can also contribute to missed or irregular periods, and just so you know birth control is not a guaranteed way to regulate your periods since everyone reacts differently to them some women experience breakthrough bleeding and spotting while on hormonal birth control hope this helps, Good Luck and God Bless!!!


Is it normal to have brown spotting between periods when you have skipped the placebo birth control pills?

The placebo pill is taken so you have the habit of taking the birth control pill, even during your period. So your period should happen the week your placebo is taken. So if you are taking the pill and you have missed a pill and then doubled up or just missed the pill sometimes you can spot brown. Sometimes you can spot brown at the very end of your cycle. It could also be the birth control pill you are taking isn't the right one for you. Contact your physician if you are following the directions of the prescription and spotting mid cycle. i always skip placebo pills since they are only needed to remind you to the the pill at the same time every day. you get your period when you are supposed to start placebos. Brown spotting is a "period" and happens to me all the time.

Is it normal to have a period lasting longer than 7 days while in the first month of taking birth control?

Yes. There are a lot of variables in the first few months of birth control: every woman has different reactions to birth control, including spotting, skipped periods, weight gain, weight loss, etc. Such long periods should not last. If you are truly concerned, of course, the best course of action is to speak to your prescribing doctor to be sure your reaction is normal. He or she knows your medical history better and can understand whether a longer period has any clinical significance or is simply a side effect. You should never be afraid to ask your doctor about any suspected side effects from medications.
