you are pregnant. Do you still continue taking the surgar pill and still recieve your menstral or does it skip it,I mean how are you suppose to know if you are or arent pregnant?
You start the pills either on the 5th day of your period, or on the first sunday of you period, even if your period starts on a sunday, You take 1 pill each day, at around the same time everyday and when you get to the sugar pills, take them to keep you in the habit of taking one everyday, and you period will start sometime while you are taking the sugar pills. If you miss an active pill, take it as soon as you realize you missed one and take that days pill at the time you normally do. When you have taken your 21rst active pill, you are safe from unwanted pregnancy as long as you continue to take the pills. You are safe even during your period, but, be sure not to miss the first pill of your new pack.You may still be on your period when you start the new pack and it should stop it for you.. You will probably notice a much shorter period with lots less cramping and bleeding. The pills is probably the most effective form of birth control around with a failure rate of less than 1%, if taken properly.
