It has been my experience that your cycles will usually be fairly close. I've never had mine vary more than a day off, depending on what I've been doing that day. (the more active, the earlier it may start) .AnswerMy periods always come on a Tuesday, but a day off isn't a big deal. But it should come the same day or the next. If you exercise or active, it will come faster. AnswerI'm a Sunday starter, and my periods always come on Tuesdays. I've been on Yasmin for about a year now. AnswerI am on Ortho Tri-Cyclen and I am a Sunday starter. My period usually comes on Tuesday or Wednesday, but sometimes even Thursday. AnswerI'm a Yasmin Sunday starter and I always start my period on a Wednesday every month. AnswerIt depends. If you have never really had a regular period then it's normal to still have irregular periods while being on Birth Control. my periods are usually a few days off every time. I've even been known to start 2 weeks early sometimes too so it's all good, I wouldn't worry about it too much.
On hormonal birth control you don't get a period, you get a withdrawal bleed.
Hormonal birth control pills work by stopping your menstrual cycles so that you no longer ovulate, and as you no longer ovulate you also no longer menstruate. The bleeding women experience on the pill is a withdrawal bleed caused by the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills or the week break every 28 days. Your withdrawal bleed should always occur on that placebo week, once you've been on the pill for a while this will be exact to the day.
Unfortunately there is no way to delay your period except for birth control pills.
As long as you are taking your birth control pills it is very unlikely that you would get pregnant, wether you skip your period or not. Als always if you are unsure, speak to your doctor or nurse.
