Re: Is it possible to shorten my period on birth control pills?
I agree, you should not start taking the new active pills early. You're going to mess up everything if you do.
It's pointless to do that anyway because eventually, after you've been on the pill for a while, you should only have a 3-4 day period, anyway. If you started your placebos on a Sunday, by Thursday, your period should be gone.
You should keep in mind that there's a reason why the directions are written the way that they are. And all over the place, girls who try to change the way they take their pills are getting pregnant left and right or having major issues with breakthrough bleeding and other side effects. It's not worth it to mess around with your dose that way.
