Hello everyone,


I have a question for those who take the pill. I am currently on it myself and next month my boyfriend is coming to visit me. I am suppose to have my period and wanted to know if I could delay it by a week without totally skipping it. I skipped it a couple of months ago and felt disgusting...Would it work if I started taking it a week later then Im suppsoe to?


Thanks for the adivce.

I'm not on the pill now, but used to be. In my experience you can either start it a week later, or instead of taking your sugar pills just go ahead and start a new pack. As long as I was on the pill I wouldn't have a period. I wouldn't do it too many months in a row....don't think its good to skip that many from the pill.

I'm on the pill and when I miss a pill it delays my period a day or two.

you could possibly skip a week- week three for an example-, and use the last week of the pack a week early. That way you start your new pack the week you would have been having your period, if that makes sense,

message me if you need a buddy or advice!

I had the same problem lol. Every couple of days, don't take the pill. But don't skip more than two days at a time. If you do this over a month or so, when the time comes when you were supposed to run out of pills and get your period, you will have a couple pills left, hence delaying you period. Good luck! :)

I have read lot on this do not have to take your inactive pills, just take the active ones continuously. many gynecologists recommend this. The periods a woman has while on the pill are not real periods anyhow. Look it up online.

Call your doctor it depends what pill you're on. I was on the ortho cyclean or however you spell it and i could take 3 packs of pills right after the other skipping the period weeks.
