    Hi All,

    I'm kinda of new to this and am in need of some help with a few birth control questions. My gf started on the 21 day pack of birth control and I am unsure as to how her period comes about. Will it always be during that 7 day period after she stops the pills to when she restarts the following week? Could it come during that 21 day period she is taking the pill? If she is still on her period when she is to restart taking the pill the following week will it harm her?

    Thanks

    Her period should come in the week when she is not taking the pills. It can sometimes run over slighty into when she starts the next pack but that shouldn't be a problem. I did have some problems with bleeding during the packets but changing the brand of pill can stop this if it does occur.

    The plan is that during the 21 days of pill-taking, she will not bleed. During the week off, she should bleed. That's the normal situation.

    Many factors can cause a different cycle. Added to what Emerly said, if your g/f misses a pill or two, she could bleed, as her body is being given the signal that it's time to release the blood supply in her uterus. It doesn't mean she is having a problem. Just means she needs to be more responsible.

    Of course, as with any new medication, it's important to use as directed, and inform the doctor of any unusual physical actions.

    depending on the individual it can often take a month or two for the body to settle down into the new cycle so she may spots randomly at first.
