    To the hour!?  Wow!  I’m on Implanon and it is definitely “who knows?”

    Mine is definitely to the day, but the hour depends on my stress levels 😛

    When I was on hormonal birthcontrol, I knew that I would have my period the Saturday morning after my last active pill. lol

    With no bc I knew within a day or two when it would come.

    Since having a baby, who knows. I still haven’t had a period 9 months later.

    When I was on the pill it was usually to the day, but there was maybe 1 or 2 months our of the several years I was on it that it was a day or two late…who knows why, but it eventually came 🙂

    I get mine sometime during the week of placebo pills.  Usually between the 2nd and 5th day.

    My last pill is taken on Saturday morning-ish. I should be bleeding by Monday PM or Tuesday AM.

    Mine used to be to the hour, but the last few months (like, 6 or so) its been getting later and later.  To the point where I’m starting a day later than I used to.  But if I think back on my history since I started bc, it’s actually been moving all along.  I used to start on Tuesdays, now I’m not starting until Fridays.

    Mine is to the day.  Between the evening of the 3rd sugar pill and the morning of the 4th.

    Mine is usually to the day (third day on the sugar pill), but I’ve had issues with spotting on some of them, which means I have to switch to find one that works best for me.  So annoying!

    I’m on the patch, so it depends on when exactly I take off that 3rd patch, but it’s almost always Friday – Monday.

    Mine is to the day but I never know what time of the day it happens..sometimes morning and sometimes the evening but it is always on the same day.
