  • Yes, but you have 2 choices. You can start right back up and your period will stop or you can let it run it's course and start over after taking the "period" pills in your pack

  • Yup it is very common, especially since these are low estrogen. Just keep on your schedual. Your body will rectify itself, in the meantime use other protection

  • Yes you miss a pill and start a period, I thought being on the pill sucked, my daughter is on the shot she doesn't have to worry about periods anymore
