I have never been on 'the pill' (I refuse to go there) so I do not know how these things are supposed to work? Huh However, I would say give your doc a call and ask.

Here's hoping everything gets back the way it's supposed to.

I'm not sure if you're concerned because of a possibility of pregnancy or another medical issue, but I second the suggestion to give your doctor/clinic a call.  I've been on a couple of different types of birth control pills and they can affect your cycle in different ways.  Asking doesn't hurt and could ease your mind.  Smiley  I hope everything works out soon.

What are they for, and what pill?

Psst--"The Pill"--birth control.  Wink  In some varieties, the fourth week of the cycle is just placebo pills.

If you're really, really concerned, I second (or third or whatever we're on) the advice to call your doctor.  A few things to keep in mind, though...  First, if you've only just started taking the Pill, it might take a few months for things to settle in.  Second, even on the Pill there can be some variation in your cycle.  Things like stress and diet can still affect you; I used to be late by a few days all the time when I was really stressed out.  So it may not be anything to worry about.  (But I'm not a doctor, just someone who's been on the Pill and is currently having her own battle with it too, so again--if you're worried, definitely call the doc and ask.)

Check with your doctor (or if your health care has a question line, try there.)

When I was on the Pill, my period wouldn't start until 3-4 days into the placebos quite regularly: that was just natural for me, my body, and my cycle. (Remember that it takes more than 24 hours for the hormones in the last active pill to fade from your system, too!) I'd also sometimes have months where I just didn't get a period (and my doctor said that was fine), but my body is notoriously messed up that way (as I'm now working on rebalancing after getting off the pill and working with an herbalist.)

Yeast infections shouldn't affect your cycle - but sometimes strain on your body can do some weird things. Talking to your doctor if you're concerned is always a good move.

Ugh. I hear you. The pill sucks. I just got on it myself, for medical reasons. Hope it gets better.

Am I the only one who likes being on the pill? Before I got on it, I would literally be bed-ridden with cramps and I'd be extremely heavy for about 5 days. My periods lasted a full 7 days and would skip around and surprise me all too often.

Now my acne is cleared up (thanks to more meds), my periods are way lighter and only last about five days (which I can time literally to the day when it will start), and my cramps are pretty much non-existent.


But I am sorry about the depression. ((((Asharti))))

{{{poor thing!}}}}}If you are feeling this bad since you started taking bc pills, I would strongly urge you to call your gyn. Some people really can't hang with those synthetic hormones, I am one. I have always had a really tough time on the pill, and I eventually gave it up entirely after trying several different types.

(((hugs))) oh man. Tell your therapist about the pill and your concerns with it...he or she may actually have some suggestions. (like Rose said; some people just do NOT do well with having their hormones screwed with.)

Well... as a guy I don't have much experience with this sort of thing--yeah right, I've got more experience than most girls*.  I have 3 sisters, an older brother who's never home, my mother has been the only static parent in my life, and me and step dads don't get along.  That and I have had my fair share of girlfriends.

Point is, unless there's something medically wrong with you--physical pain, chronic depression, and of course there's always the slight possibility of some parasite eating it's way through you... but that's 50/50 so it's best not to worry about it.  Seriously though, if it's just the irregular menstrual cycle, don't worry about it.  Until you reach about 25--and sometimes not even then--your period being irregular is normal, or at least not uncommon.  I know a 20 year old girl who to this day hasn't had a period.  I know others who stopped and a week later started for their 4-7 days of hell.

Don't worry about your period... it hasn't gone anywhere... it's probably just taking it's union mandated scare-the-crap-out-of-you break.  It would be more useful to know how long you've been taking the pill, have you ever missed any doses, anything else knew in your life that could explain any of the symptoms?

I love love love the Pill, for the pretty much the same reasons you describe.  I'm just not particularly helpful with Pill-trouble, as I never seem to get any of the side effects or problems.  I'm thankful!

Nope, I'm not on the Pill, I'm on Depo, but same difference in that it's Hormonal BC.  My cramps kept me out of school and I was Never regular.  Just before I got on Depo I was having a flow for nearly 3 weeks only to start back a couple of weeks later.  It was Horrible.  Depo saved my sanity.  Praise be the Depo!

You need to call your Gyno ASAP.  There are a Lot of women who do not react well to the hormones in birth control.  This could all be possibly fixed with a change in pills.  Sometimes you have to just keep trying pills until you find the one that works for you.  You should check out various women's health forums and see what is working for people who have not had great luck with certain pills.  That can at least give you a starting point to discuss with your Gyno when you talk to him/her.
