question about birth control

Recommended Posts



i started my second cycle of tri-cyclen lo, but because im on vacation, i messed up the time differences and started the cycle a day early (meaning that there were 6 days between, not the usual 7). i decided it would be better to continue taking the pills, instead of skipping a day...do you think this will have any major effects? thanks for any input!

Yeah, because, correct me if I'm wrong(I've only dated one girl that was on birth control pills(Alesse), the other on the patch).. But you have 3 weeks of active pills, and 1 week of "nothing" really. Just pills to keep you in the habit of taking them.. Well, you "skipped" a blank pill and started the active pills, which would have ended your period short of the full week..



Still check with your health care provider, but I wouldn't worry to much. Perhaps be a little careful when having sex for atleast a week.
