@SimpleGifts:  I think you should be curious but not necessarily concerned. It’s been a million years since I was on the pill (I’m old) so I don’t remember if that ever happened to me, but if you google “period in middle of birth control pack” you’ll find tons of hits, so it’s obviously not uncommon!

No worries. It happened to me on Seasonique all the time. i just didn’t use a tampon when it happened and continued taking pills. Once it was so bad that I just let myself have a period anyway and used backup protection.

i have been on the same bcp for nine months and i am STILL not getting my period during the placebo pill week. the doctor assures me it’s still effective, but it seems weird to me. but unlike you, this has been consistently happening since i started taking it. 

a lot of those people posting abotu having their period in the middle of the pack have just started the packs, it is “supposed” to stop after three months or so. not in my case.

i take lo loestrin fe.

@SimpleGifts:  Interesting, thanks for the reply. Well, i consistently had issues with my period coming at the “wrong” time on several other pills as well. i used to chalk it up to not taking it consistently enough. then i got better about that and it STILL happened. i finally got one that worked- and it gave me two giant (benign) breast cysts within six months sending me into a panic and geting mammograms etc. so needless to say i didnt want to be on that one anymore even though it did regulate my cycle. it is the only pill that has done so.

what can i say… i just have a raging period i guess. haha, lucky me. 😛

Mine is always in the middle of the pack. I take generic Alesse and I figured it was just b/c I am TERRIBLE about taking the pills at the same time every night.
