It happens very frequently when women try to skip the non-active pills to avoid getting her period. What most don't know and now you do is that many times it backfires and you end up spotting for longer than the period would have lasted. Skipping sugar pills can mess up your cycle.

If someone is on the pill and wants to delay her period only one week should she take 4 weeks of active pills with no pause and when should she start the new pack?

Normally you would take 3 weeks active pills, and 1 week nonactive. To skip your period you would take active pills in place of nonactive for the 4th week. When you would normally start a new pack, right after the 4th week, is when you would start.

You indeed can become pregnant if you missed 3 pills and are bleeding. The reason you would be bleeding or maybe spotting is because you're not taking the pills. If you've missed 3 pills in one pack, you should throw that pack away and start a new pack and definitely use backup protection!

If you forget a couple of pills and you bleed slightly could you be spotting due to pregnancy or was your body starting its period?

Birth Control Pills are 99% effective when used as directed, missing pills without back up protection makes them much less effective - If your period is 7 days late I would recommend a pregnancy test and a more effective form of birth control.

How to make a period arrive a few days early when taking birth control pills?

I posted the above question. I know that if I miss a couple of pills in a row, I will start spotting. So if I ditch the last few days of pills, that should do the trick (supposedly). My real question is: Would it be more "natural" for my body if I skip the 7th pill of each week? I would like to take this fast-forward route if it works :)

Can you delay your period by taking your new pack immediately?

Can spotting for one day eleven days after conception mean a miscarriage?

No. Spotting is probably implantation bleeding. You would know if you had miscarried because it would be heavier and painful

If you had your period early n skipped the sugar pills n went right into the next pack will it stop your period?

Probably. If you miss any active pills in the last week of a packet, it is recommended you skip the placebo pills and go straight to your next packet of active pills. This can cause you to skip your period, so it would possibly cause your period to stop. If you are taking a progestin only mini-pill - break through bleeding or menstruating can be a sign you are also ovulating and should be reported to your health care provider. Break through bleeding can be a common side effect in the first 3 to 6 months of using oral contraceptives. If you continue to have spotting or early period type bleeding after 6 months of use, you should speak with your health care provider about finding another pill that does not have this side effect.
