I may have misinterpreted how to start taking the pill for the first time. I waited until after my period was over(one week later) and started taking it. I think I may have started it wrong. Can I continue to take my remaining pills or start over and take it the first day of my period? Knowing I should have started it on the first day or within /in 24 hours of my period makes me concerned.
i started taking pills one week after my period, April 10 and end 15,, i complete taking pills in two weeks before i make love with my boy friend,, i finish taking pills in may 13,, i should have my period in may 10 but until now i don't have,,pls help me,,
I have just started my period today and was planning to start taking the pill today too for the first time. But I;m on holiday so I don't have it with me. Can I start taking the first ones in 2 weeks time when I get back even though I will no longer have my period? And if so, will this make me get an extra period for month??
I am on loestrin 24 FE. I have taken my pills at the same time everyday for the last 8 days. On day 8 i had unprotected sex. Am i protected?
Should i take plan B to make sure?
How will that affect the pills i am taking/period?
I have to same issue. This is my first time taking the pill. My doctor gave me the okay to take it on a sunday two weeks after my last period. I was told me periods might be a bit off for about 3 months. But here is my question, how will they be "off" will they be late, skipped, light? I have no idea what to expect.
Everyone is different on how your body responds to the hormones and becoming "regular". Note that "regular" for everyone is different. Some people on BC have VERY regular (exactly on the same number of days into the inactive pills) some people are lighter and some are still heavier. You are right in thinking you may be late or skipper. Probably not any lighter than normally on the pill. After about 3 months you will be regular, which means you''ll have your period during the inactive pills (aka blanks) which are the 4th weeks of pills. Just give it a little time and you''ll know what is happening, but don''t be surprised if you are a little later or even if you skip a period.
period came while on active pills--am I protected?
I am on loestrin 24 for a few months now. My period came about a week early while i was on the active pills. When my period was done, I was on the inactive pills. My husband and I had sex all weekend after my period was over and I was still on the inactive pills. Am I am protected. It wasn''t till days later that I was due to start the new pack. I have been feeling very sick, tired, no appetite and cramping. Could I be pregnant?
