question about birth control??

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Pills that is. How long after you start the "placebo" pills or colored pills, or iron pills whatever you want to call them, how long after taking the first one do you start your period? How many days?

Oh I do anyway lol. I went from a 23 days between periods to 28 on these pills but I figured it would throw my body off, but I have been spotting since my 23 days were up. just irritating I like to see it come, confirmation that I am in the clear lol

If you just resently started taking them it will be at least a few months for you system to regulate. A peice of advice, keep tampons or pds with you at all times because you will probably have some bleeding in between your normal periods at first.

I will have to call the doc tomorrow. I just counted and I have taken 4 so far. I am so exhausted I feel like I am going to fall asleep walking. I switched from a 23 day cycle to the pills at 28 days cycle and I think my body is rebelling against me because of it.

It will more than likely vary until your body adjusts to the pill, every person is different. When I switched pills in January I was a nightmare to deal with- I'm surprised my DH didn't leave me lol, I was constantly tired and ├╝ber bitchy. Give your body time to adjust, it will eventually. :)
