microgestin, didnt skip a week.

ugh i tried to play God and didnt take the week off of microgestin 1/20. i was trying to stop my period, which it did delay for a few days, but now my period is here and i'm taking the pills on the week i should have skipped, crap. any advice if i should stop taking them or keep taking them. need my period to disappear. dumb dumb dumb but now i want to not have my period on sunday (today is thurs). any idea if i should stop for 4 days and let my period come, or keep taking it hoping it goes away? any advice from your experience is appreciated. i will never do this again, thats for sure.

Re: microgestin, didnt skip a week.

When I was on that pill I skipped the placebos often and just had some spotting here and there occasionally. It doesn't work for everyone so it's a shame you're one of the unlucky ones. I suggest you just keep taking it because eventually the bleeding will stop. I can't say for sure when it will stop but it's possible it might be gone by Sunday. It would be worse to stop taking it at this point because I think that might make the problem worse. Right now you've got a steady stream of hormones in your system which will get messed up if you stop taking active pills. That's why it's better for you to keep taking it now.
