Hello,

I was just prescribed birth control pills and have to begin taking them on the first day of my period. My period *just* ended and I really don't want to wait over a month before starting (my cycle is approximately 34 days). I have heard that Humphrys 11 tablets will induce early menstruation. If I use these pills and menstruate early so that I can begin taking the birth control pill, will the pill be just as effective?

Thanks for your time,

J. peeking

Humphreys 11 is a homeopathic preparation for relief of irregular or delayed menses. It is not used for shortening a normal cycle. Anyway Humphreys 11 is not FDA-aproved medication so can't be reliable.

It is not very safe to sart taking birth control pills after your period ended. You can wait for the next period. In the mean time you can use condom to prevent pregnancy.
