I'm currently on my period and do not want to start on my new back of birth control due to the fact that I do not want my period the week that I would be getting it if I started my next pack as soon as I finish my sugar pills. Can I wait a week between finishing my sugar pills and starting my new pack without the risk of becoming pregnant during this month? I've heard that you have to wait at least 2 weeks- a month for birth control to take effect, would this be the same as if I wait a week to begin my new pack? If I still run a chance of becoming pregnant, is there any way I can skip my period? The birth control I take is reclipsen, if that helps at all.
No you can't wait. Not if you want to be protected. If you want to skip a period, you do it this way: take your pills until you get to the sugar pills, then start a new pack, without taking the sugar pills. Its safe to do this. You cannot manipulate your pills any old way. It has been found that the way I just told you is safe, keeps you protected, and skips the period.

Sronyx - If my pack ends (and so the week of my period is about to start), can I start my next pack?
