I took my period back to back last month because I didn't want a period. Now I want to shift my period starting day. I stop taking my pill thursday and normally start the following friday. I get my period saturday night. I want to change my period to a week day. I want to still be protected so I dont think stopping the pill today and binning the last two would be a good idea. Can I start the new pack and take them until Sunday, so from monday to the following monday I get my period? Thanks.
No, you can't do that. If you mess around with them, you are risking increasing your chance of pregnancy. There is a reason there are 21 active pills, because you are supposed to take 21 in a row. If you took a few of the next month then stopped, you are risking ovulation because you won't be taking the active pill for a week. You have to stick with the schedule. Leave well enough alone and learn to cope with your period when it happens. You girls don't know how lucky you are to have the pill and be able to skip a period. Messing around with them is not a wise idea. I didn't have the option of skipping periods and I had my period for every prom I ever went to, and every vacation I ever went on, because God made me to work that way.
