What If I Skip Two Periods In A Row On The Pill
Was on the pill for 3 months and now off. The last month i was on it, i skipped some. I recently got two periods the following months, now im late?
Is it safe for me to skip my placebo's twice in a row for alesse 21 so i have no period or bad cramps for 2 months? Its my second month on the pill.
Yes: There are no studies that have yet to show that skipping your period by not taking the placebo has an harmful effects on your health. You may not be able to continue filling your prescription early on a continuous basis, however. If this is the approach you want to take, consider taking a birth control pill that's made for this use - such as Lybrel, Seasonale, or Seasonique. Best wishes. ...Read more
I had a light period two weeks ago exactly. Now I'm very lightly bleeding again. I notice it when I wipe that how light. I've been on the pill for four years but tend to miss days and I've been sexually active. Any idea what's going on?
I can say one thing: You either need to be prepared to become pregnant or you need much better sexual safety behavior. That said, it can be one of the things you bring up at an OBGYN exam to discover the cause of your unusual cycle. Please take yourself more seriously. It is a matter of health and adult responsibility. Best! ...Read more

Often : Often times when you miss a pill your hormone levels are off thus resulting in spotting or light bleeding. On the other hand the fact that you missed a pill puts you at risk for pregnancy. So implanttaion bleeding is a possibility. You should have started your period by now or be expecting it soon. If it does not come take a pregnancy test. Good luck. ...Read more
missed two periods.tests are negative. Gyno said wait to see if I miss a third,then will give me a pill to start my period. ?could I still be pregnant
Very unlikely: Pregnancy tests are accurate and reliable, and although no test is 100%, pregnancy tests are close. If you have more than one negative pregnancy test then it is very unlikely you are pregnant. I agree with your Gyno's plan. You should of course have one more pregnancy test prior to taking the pill(s) to start your period. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I normally skip a period occasionally but have skipped 2 now using the pill and I've been breakthrough bleeding for over a week. When will it stop?
Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very normal on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more
