So I've only just started taking levlen birth control pills and I have a few questions. Because my period had finished right before I went to the doctor to get on the pill he said to start taking the active pills (brown pills in the pack) so I've taken yesterday's (Monday when I first went to the doctor) and today's which is Tuesday. So because I'm starting on the active pills I have 3 weeks on them then a week on the sugar pills is this right? Then when I'm on the sugar pills do I get my period? And when I get to the sugar pills (white ones) how long til I get my period after taking them? Or do I get it straight away? And if I still have my period but all the sugar pills in that pack are gone do I take the active pills in the next pack? And follow through? Or do I take the sugar pills until my period has finished? Because I usually get my period after 4 weeks is it normal to only take 3 weeks of the brown ones and then a week of the sugar pills? And is that when I get my period when I'm on the sugar pills? I hope this makes sense. And sorry for all the questions I'm just a little confused because I had to start on the brown pills not the sugar ones like usual. Please help my confusion :)
You are correct on taking it, and you will get your period some time in the sugar pill week. You're regular cycle is not applicable now. Your body will be controlled by the pill. I have a big question. What pill did you take that starts with the sugar pills, because of almost 200 of them I can't think of one that does.
