Stopping birth control?

On Sunday, I start my last week of my pills for birth control... I was wondering if I could just stop it now?

  • I stopped the pill mid cycle, you may get your period sooner than you would if you completed the cycle. This is just my experience, good luck.

  • The last week are just sugar pills anyway. I never took them.

  • You can stop whenever you want, but the last week are typically just sugar pills any way to keep you on the schedule of taking them. It shouldn't affect your period at all, but if you stopped mid cycle it may.

  • I stopped during the "sugar pills" and never started a new pack.. This was two months ago. *Crossing fingers* now and hoping it doesn't take too long.
