... have some breakthrough bleeding right now because I skipped a period also I'm supposed to take it out on Sunday, Dec. 21 for my ring free week.. So I want to change my period date. So I was thinking taking it out tomorrow and placing it on dec 23rd. Is that alright?
No its not. That would be like skipping the rest of your active birth control pills. What you can do is leave it in for 4 weeks then take it out for a week. This would change your period week in the future. If you left it in 4 weeks, then took it out for week, your period would be moved a week.
You never alter your schedule for any bleeding you might do, or not do.
