hiya, my period is due in about a weeks time but i am going away and would really like not to get it!!! I am planning to go back onto microgynon 30 pills (i have been on them on and off for years) but wondered if i started the pills now, would i miss my period next week??? (i realise i would not be protected straight away)
Yes, if you start the pills now you would miss your period next week. You can delay your menstrual period expected next week if you started a new contraceptive pack now. You wonât be protected from an unwanted pregnancy so you might consider to use another contraceptive method (condom) in the meantime.
