I am about to start this birth control pill tomorrow since my doctor told me not to wait until the first Sunday of my period and I am a little nervous whether or not it will mess up my menstrual cycle. I am supposed to get my period in about 12 days and I would be on day 11 of the pill.
If you start it other then around your period it may take a month or two to get onto the pill cycle but it will change your period. While you are taking the active pills, the hormone level is high in your body so your body isn't triggered to bleed. When you are on the sugar pills the hormone level drops and that triggers your body to bleed.
