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.

Why would you be spotting for 2 months while not on birth control pills?

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 :)
