When taking birth control are you supposed to start your period the week you take the white pill or the week after the white pills are gone?

Tags: , , , , , 7 Comments

It depends on the birth control. I usually start my period when there is one white pill left and that is healthy and normal. The white pills are just sugar pills, the absence of the hormone that you get from the colored pills brings on your period. Any comments?

    it depends when you start your period when taking the white pills. you can start it the next or a few days after the white pills it just depends on the person. you can get pregnant while on your period but only if you are not using ANY form of BC you are on BC so you are fine you dont ovulate while on BC. you are still protected even while on the white pills. ive had sex while on them. im also had a short period that lasted only two days. your BC can shorten your period and make them lighter. you are fine no its not unprotected sex because the hormones from the pink active pills have built up in your system and continue to protect you as long as you are taking every pill including the white ones. yes the white pills are reminder pills but you are still protected. Yes anti-biotics can mess you with your pills and could make them ineffective while the anti-biotics are still in your system just use a condom during that time. after the two weeks then you dont have to use a condom. ive been on many anti-biotics while being on my pills and ive had sex after the anti-biotics were out of my system. yes i would use condoms for three weeks as the meds can still be in your system up to two weeks just to make sure your protected. i was put on anti-biotics on a few days after i had sex for a throat infection. but i was fine and my pills were successful in keeping me protected. just make sure you take steps to keep your self protected while on them. as long as you take your pills right will be fine and free to have as much sex as you want.
