I'm only 3 green pills in so i could get my period any time. after my first month of pills i got my period i believe 3 green pills in. I haven't had any sex the first month but I have the second. When will I get my period? or is it just being funky because my body is still getting use to the birth control?
If your taking them at the same time every day, you can be sure you aren't pregnant. The average is the 3 or 4 pill in but it can happen any time during the week. If by any chance your'e still bleeding when its time to go to a new pack, just start it anyway.
It is important to take these low dose bcp's at the same time everyday. Having said that, if this pill is new for you, give it 3-4 months to adjust to you. If you are missing pills and are sexually active take pregnancy test. Remember, antibiotics can make oral contraceptives ineffective so always use protection. Hope this helps. Expect light menses with these low dose pills as well. Just keep taking everyday and keep record of you cycle for the MD.
