I have been taking orally administered Birth Control Pills since mid july, with perfect use the whole time. I have reached the end of my first packet, and I'm on my "period week" of pills (they are blue). I took the first one yesterday at the normal time, and I just took the second one a few hours ago. As of now, my "withdrawal bleeding" has not started. I have been been pretty sexually active recently, relying on Birth Control Pills as the primary form of contraception (my boyfriend does not wear a condom). If my period has not started yet, will it begin soon? Could I be pregnant? There are only 5 blue pills left before I start a new packet.
I have been on BCP for a little over a month now. Two weeks (+2 days) ago, I got my period. It has not stopped since, and I'm starting to worry. Having trouble getting in contact with my gyno. My questions...
Should I stop taking my BCP? If I stop taking my BCP now, will my period cease in the next few days? Do I need to take a different BCP for this not to happen?
