Re: 3 questions about my pills. Any help appreciated. THANKS!
1. That shouldn't be a problem because you are on a pill with the same horomone dose throughout. I have done the same thing with no problems.
2. It can cause heavier bleeding and more breakthrough bleeding, but not always. When I started bcp about 4 months ago, I was sick of waiting for my period and I was certain that I was not pregnant, so I just picked a Sunday and started. I had no breakthrough bleeding, and my period was not horrible. It was heavier than I was hoping it would be on bcp, but I have always had heavy periods.
3. You can start anytime into the placebo pills. I was told that most women start within 3 days or so, but personally I start on the 5th or 6th day of placebos, and it is considered normal.
