Can taking the Plan B pill while on birth control pills delay your period during the placebo week?

I believe so. I am not a gynecologist, but my understanding is that Plan B is a high dose of hormones that induce shedding of the lining of the uterus (preventing an egg/embryo from implanting). Taking Plan B while taking placebo (which are sugar pills) will be like taking Plan B by itself. Bleeding based on a new schedule caused by Plan B may be earlier or l8r than usual depending on how ur body reacts.

I am on regular birth control pills. I took Plan B the first day of my placebo week because of condom failure. Could Plan B make me miss my period?

Maybe. If you were taking the birth control pills regularly it is very unlikely that you would become pregnant...Even with a broken condom. The condom is helping very little with your contraception but using a condom can be a good way to prevent some stds, not all. Plan b could alter your period. Just begin your next pill cycle on the correct day. Get a pregnancy test done to prove you are not pregnant. Read more...

If you get pregnant while in birth control pills would you still get a period during placebo week?

Possibly yes. Whether on birth control or not, typically women who conceived will not get a menstrual period. However, some women do have their menstrual periods sometimes just a few cycles into their pregnancies, occasionally throughout the entire pregnancy. Having had a menstrual period is not a reliable indicator for a woman that she is not pregnant. Read more...

I am using sprintec birth control pills and did not receive my period until after the placebo week. What does this mean?

Breakthrough bleedin. Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common 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...
Not a problem. It is not typical, but not worrisome. As long as you haven't missed any of your pills, continue as usual. How you bleed on the pill has no impact on its protecting you from pregnancy. If you have missed pills, then get a pregnancy test to be safe. For more info www.Askyourgynecologist.Org. Read more...
Continue for now. I would need more info but this is what i recommend. You have to be in a birth control for at least 3 cycles or 3 months to really see if it has the effect you are looking for with it. You also have to be methodically compliant, not to skip days etc then in most cases you should be able to regulate the period if that is the desired effect besides contraception. Even if your period came a bit later. Read more...
