If you are already on the pill, stopping them and starting them on a different day to reschedule your period puts you at risk for pregnancy and/or make you have irregular bleeding for a while. If you are just starting the pill, you can start it on the day you start your period or the Sunday immediately following your period (even if you are still bleeding). Sunday startup is popular because it would ensure that you won't have your period on any weekend.

No, diet pills are not safe for teenagers. The teenage body is still growing and changing and unless directed by a doctor this medication should be avoided by teens.

Yes you can by skipping the sugar pills and sarting the "active pills".

You are suppose to be off of the pill while you have your period. The pills you take during your period are only sugar and do nothing.

It is safe to intentionally skip a period by starting a new pack immediately instead of taking sugar pills for a week. Some doctors opinion's vary with the length of time that you are able to continuously skip periods, but most will agree that it is safe to skip them.

Yes. Instead of taking the sugar pills just go straight to your next pack of pills. It is safe if not done all the time. I believe you can do this up to 3 times a year.

These pills are safe for not only teenagers, but appropriate for all ages and safe during pregnancy.

Technically, those seven hormone free pills are the days you are supposed to be on your period. You skip those, you skip the period. If you finish your period early, yes, you are still safe to have even though you aren't taking an active pill. FYI, all these questions should be in the information packet that was included with the pills.

Hello. You can skip a period while on birth control pills but constantly skipping periods via birth control pills, isn't recommended. Skipping a period this once will be fine.

User Avatar

YES! the period every 28 days is arbitrary. you may have some breakthrough bleeding when you continuously take the active pills but it is safe to do so and still provides effective birth control.

User Avatar

if you're on the pill, skip the "inactive" pills and start again on a new pill pack instead. the inactive part is what gives you your period. it's safe and everything. Just continue to take your active pills without a break or taking sugar pills and you will stop your period. It won't hurt you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist.

When taking birth control pills the directions should be followed exactly as stated. With most pills now after 3 weeks worth of pills there are white blank pills to help you keep your place while you are on your period. (My mistake I think I deleted the previous answer. It disappeared and says I modified it)

You're probably safe but why do you take the sugar pills? Why don't you just take the proper ones? That way you'll always be safe.

There are many side effects to taking any type of pills. There aren't any safe pills out there in the world. If you wanted to find out where you can purchase some stress reduction pills, visit your local gnc store.

User Avatar

That would mean stopping your pills a week early, no that is not a good idea, you could ovulate and get pregnant. You would be better off skipping the placebo pills and going straight to the new pack, the day you should start the placebo - so you don't have breakthrough bleeding that month. (skip your period completely that cycle.)

If you didn't get your period while on the sugar pills, it's not necessarily a sign of pregnancy. Many women have very light or no periods when they first start taking the pill, it's a side effect. If you are asking if it's safe to intentionally skip a period by skipping the sugar pills and moving on to the next active pill pack, the answer is yes. You can skip your period without any increased risk of pregnancy; however, you may have unscheduled spotting or bleeding.

The purpose of birth control pills are to make it so a woman can't get pregnant. If she DOES take them while she's pregnant, it can be harmful if used for a sustained period. Birth control pills are safe for women to take to prevent pregnancy.
