You can also try taking the pill at a different time of the day, such as before bed time or taking the pill with some food. ...Read more
Also known as oral contraceptives, birth control pills are highly effective oral medications that use hormones to prevent pregnancy.

I just started a new brand and pack of birth control pills while I am on my period. Does the period last longer since this has happened?
New bcp's: Most oral bcp's are now "low dose" types, so the week on placebo's is relatively light.
