I'm on Orsythia. Can I make my period shorter by starting a new pack after I've taken some of the blue pills of my old one? Or finish blue pills?

I'm on Orsythia. Can I make my period shorter by starting a new pack after I've taken some of the blue pills of my old one? Or finish blue pills?

Yes!: You can shorten the last week of pills if you like. For example, you can take the first 3 weeks of pills, and then only take the first 4 pills of the fourth week. On day 5 of the fourth week, you start the first pill of a new pack. This will shorten your periods and can improve PMS, headaches, etc. You must always take all of the first 3 weeks. As long as you do this, you will be protected. ...Read more

Can anemia make my period shorter?(i had a one day period, bled once only) my haemoglobin came out to be 6.3, is this the reason for my short period

Short & long story: Your short period at 6.3 hemoglobin may be a "survival" mechanism for this "long story". When the blood level of red blood cells plunges to this low level, your ability to carry oxygen to the peripheral tissues diminishes greatly.As a result mother nature will try to "conserve" red blood cells lost during your period. I hope you are seeing a md to find the cause and are taking an iron supplement. ...Read more

Hi I have some sort of problem I've had a really weird period it was really short and light, I also feel really sick at odd times of day ?

Any chance of preg.?: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after having a weird period.
