You could have missed a pill or taken one late causing your period to start early. This is the only thing I can think of. Or if it's a new kind of Birth Control for you, it may not be the right kind. Talk to the doctor that prescribes it for you and they will help yo find a better kind.


Sometimes that happens especially when you first start taking birth control pills. It is called 'breakthrough bleeding' a side effect of the pill.

This has happened to me twice in the 9 months I've been on my pills, once in the 5th month, once this month. I've never missed a pill and take them pretty well on time and both of these times have been weeks where I've been under a consideral amount of stress. At first I was concerned but after talking to my doctor she said that it's completely understandable for your body to be unbalanced under stress. So if you're stressed and you notice you get spotting/bleeding (in the last week of the active pills) then that's most likely what it is.

If you dont take the birth control regularly will it work?

You will become pregnant if you do not take your birth control pills regularly. Birth control will not work at all if you do not take it everyday at the same time.If you do not take your birth control regularly, you are not allowing the hormones to regulate and adapt in your system. By taking your birth control every day and at the same time as directed by all physicians, you will be 99.9%+ protected from pregnancy. Also if you just started taking birth control pills, you must wait 1 month before you have unprotected intercourse, because birth control does not regulate in your system anytime before that.
