... period a week before the white 'sugar" pills I stopped the pill completely thinking I should start a new pack the Sunday after my period ends is this right??? Or ok to do? Will it get out my system?
Why do you girls do this??? The ONLY time you worry about your period is when you first start your pills. After that, once you have begun taking the Pill, you DONT alter the schedule for ANY reason NO MATTER WHAT YOUR BODY IS DOING!! Sorry, I dont mean to "yell" at you, it just frustrates me that your Drs offices let you go without giving you good instruction. You should have just kept right on taking your pills. You may bleed at odd times when first starting the Pill or you might at any time have an occasion of "breakthrough" bleeding. It is just your body getting used to the hormones or sometimes just for no apparent reason. DONT HAVE SEX WITHOUT BACK UP because you are NOT protected since you stopped the pills. You are going to have to start all over. You can start a new pack now or you can wait until Sunday, which ever you prefer but from now on NEVER, ever adjust your schedule. Take them as they come in the pack. It doesnt matter if you bleed early. If you bled early, you probably wouldnt have bled on your "sugar pill" week. Once you have taken seven active pills, you can consider yourself "safe" again and can stop using back up. I'm not sure why after 2 years you would think an early period means you need to stop taking your pill. You are going to mess your cycle up starting and stopping not to mention putting yourself at risk for an unplanned pregnancy!
