I Want To Start My Period Today
Can I start birth control whenever I want to (tri-sprintec)? Just got my period. Should I wait till Sunday?
Yes: Sunday is just when we traditionally choose to start birth control because it is easy to follow on the calendar. The most important thing is to be sure to take it every single day. If you have a system that works fine, there is nothing magic about starting on Sunday. Hope this helps! ...Read more
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
When you ovulate: Your "fertile period" refers to 4 to 5 days surrounding your ovulation which tends to occur 12 to14 days before the onset of your period. It is usually not very useful or recommended to calculate your fertile period based on your day 1 of menstruation, even when you have had a regular 28 to 30 day cycle. Ask your gyn to help you tell when you ovulate and go from there. ...Read more

I just got birthcontrol pills to help with heavry flow. I just ended my period if i waited a week to start taking them would it move my period?
If you want to stop the bleeding sooner I would start taking them right away.
BC pills do have side effects of spotting. Unsure if waiting a week would move your period back a week.
There are continuous birth control pills if you want to turn it off completely for several months.
All depends on your individual hormones, and fertility desires. ...Read more
I am starting my period tomorrow or thursday, i started spotting. I want to start birth control pills. When gould i begin with my first pill?
Today or Sunday: There are 2 options for pill starting. Either right away or the sunday after the flow starts. The benefit to right away is pregnancy prevention sooner. The benefit to waiting is that the period will almost always fall during the week and not on the weekends. Convenient. ...Read more
I want my periods to start early since I'm going out next week on a vacation I want to get my period. So what tablet can I have to get my periods.
Delay possible: A period delay may be possible, but initiating an early period might be more difficult depending upon where you are in this cycle and whether you are taking the oral contraceptive pill or not. Contact your local GYN MD for a more complete answer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I got my mirena (levonorgestrel) out on 4/22/13, how long should it take to get my first period? I am trying to get pregnant and i still haven't gotten my period I am trying to get pregnant and i want to calculate .
Depends: Most patients resume normal periods after Mirena (levonorgestrel) removal fairly quickly. Most will have their first periods 3-6 weeks after removal. For the first few months you will have to patient and monitor until you get back to normal. Your fertility returns almost immediately after removal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I will be going to hawaii in 12 days that's when i start my period i just got bc they said to wait but can I just start now so i can delay my period?
No: You should not start your contraceptive pill before your period starts. Your hormonal cycle will be off balance and you may end up bleeding continuously for a month instead. ...Read more
Hi doctor, i just received my period today and i want to stop it immideatly, i want to try to get pregnant, what can i do?
Not possible: You can only stop your period immediately by taking certain doses of hormonal medication which can then prevent you from getting pregnant. I would start counting the days to the next time you will ovulate, which if you have a normal cycle is 14 days from the time your period ends. This is when you are most fertile. But I would also talk to a local physician to make sure it is ok for you to try. ...Read more
Hi i took out implant about a month ago and havent get my period and we're trying to conceive but since i havent got my period when can i start trying?
Ok I did Sunday start so that my period would start in Sunday. I have my "period" today and will start my active pill on Wed.
No matter what: No matter what happens with their menses, women on birth control pills should stick to taking the pills as scheduled to reliably suppress ovulation and to, possibly after a few cycles, become regular. If that does not happen and remains a nuisance, a pill with a different composition of estrogen and progestin may make the difference. ...Read more
