I was just wondering how many days after u start taking the sugar pills should u get ur period? If I have taken my pills every day at almost exactly the same time, is it possible that I could be pregnant? I havent missed a pill yet. Im kinda freakin out.
You should probably get your period while your still on the sugar pills, now which day that will be differs with every person. My first month I was freaking out too, because I had had sex within the first week of starting bc and I later found out that I should have waited a month (even though when I went to the website for my specific brand of bc they said I was covered after a week) but I eventually got it on the thursday (5 days into the sugar pills) wait for the week, if you start back on your hormone pills without having your period, and you suspect that you may be pregnant, take a test...
Girl, lemme join ya ^_^"... I posted earlier about having gotten off bcp after taking the first sugar pill (it was my first month's supply), and I should have gotten my period no later than tuesday (5/18-- when the sugar pills would've run out), but so far no sign of it showing up. *shrugs* I even called the bcp company, and they said that the sudden drop in hormones (from me not taking the pink pills w/ active ingredients anymore-- right bfore the sugar pills) should've caused me to bleed, but so far I haven't gotten anything. I've taken four hpts that have all come out negative, so I dunno what to make of all of this . I figure if my period doesn't show by next week, i'll go to the doctor and request a blood test to determine if i'm pregnant or not. Soo... I guess we're both in the same boat here ^_^". Lemme know if anything changes! =)
Okay im confused because my doctor told me to start the blue hormone pills when I start my period thats when I started the pill for the first time......So are u saying I should have started w/ the sugar pill???
Oh god thanks u scared me there for a min lol yah I started mine 2 days ago and had really bad cramps today but I still havent gotten it yet.....Another thing when u all first started urs how long did u go for??
After being on oral contraceptives for a while, your period will become more regular and will lessen with each month. Your period will usually begin about 2-4 days into the sugar pills. The first month your period may last the usual 5-7 days but will lessen with each month. I have been steady on birth control pills for many years and now my period only lasts 3-4 days and always begins on the 4th sugar pill. It will just take time for your period to become regular. And believe me, you will enjoy the regularity and lessening of the period itself. Best of luck!
My doc told me that you're protected when you take the first pill of the first day of your period when you start the pills...
And it's funny to hear about the sugar pills, we don't have those, we just have to take no pills for one week
Well I had sex last night....And I start my period tonight(not sure if its started yet, tampons).
And if im on these"sugar pills" now and I start my period tonight, could I get pregnant from having sex last night?
ok, im confused . i think i missed a day of the sugar pills, but im NOT sure.. what do i do ? because i dont want to start the active pills a day to early .. if i do .. whats going to happen ? please help
Your sugar pills does not matter. You can throw them all away and not take it if you want to. They are only there to remind you to take your pills every day and to help you to know when to start the next pack.
So makesure you start the next pack on the correct day, and you will be just fine.
Hi...I want to delay my periods for a week and now its been a week i have finished my periods..Can i start taking birth control pills and continue them for 3 weeks..cos i dont wanna get periods exactly aftre a month...Ex: This month i was in periods on 4th "date" of a month and next month i dont wanna be on periods on 4th "date" but want to be a week after it ..that wud be nearly 11th date or something..So that my periods wud be delayed by a week..So is it possible i start taking BC from today??? please help
As long as you have taken all your active pills and you remember to start your next pack ON TIME, you are just as protected against pregnancy during the placebo week as you are during the rest of the month.
Mine always starts on day 3. It's like clockwork. For some reason I always get anxious in the days leading up to it though! Usually I experience cramping before I bleed, too. The birth control pill works wonders. Good luck
say if i have been on birthcontrol for about 4 months
and i did great the first three months but then on the fourth month i screwed them up. instead of starting them on my usual sunday i started on a tuesday. i really didnt think anything of it but my mom was always saying that it had screwed me up and it may screw up my period. but my moms old fashion and kinda can be stupid about this so i really need help here girls ! ive been on the sugar pills for 2 days now yet i have i not gotten my period and usually i get it by the first day of sugar pills. i dont know if its cause im pregnant or because i messed up my cycle !!??!!
PLEASE SOMEONE HELPP ME OUT HERE !!!!
I have been on the pill for nearly a yr and a half and have been pretty good at being up to date and on time with them, my period shortened for a while but now even when I start on the 3rd or 4th sugar pill I have my period for 5 days at least, sometimes 7...is it ok that they arent the same every time? or is something not working? Also I skipped the sugar pills cause I didnt want to have my period for a vacation, all went well. 2 months later I had sex on my 3rd sugar pill (I hadnt started my period yet) and came on 2 days later. the sex was without a condom, but I had my full period. But this weekend Ive been moody as hell and bloated, sometimes nauseous... but nothing else. Is this just post-symptoms or could I be pregnant? That was the only time I have not used a condom... but Im so paranoid... does anyone have facts that can help out?? technically I should be protected but how soon can you take a test? do I have to wait till I miss a period to take a test?
well im freakin out as well. I skipped one pill by accident at the start of my pack, but i took it the next day as well as the one for that day. I also had unprotected sex that day so i was not covered. However i took the morning after pill to cover myself for that, and now im on my 3rd day of sugar pill and no sign of it. GOING OUT OF MY BRAINS scared!
