I just started taking the pill 3 weeks ago today so I will be starting on my white pills tomorrow, since I started the pill the day I got my last period does that mean I will be getting my period during the white pills or will it still be every 28 days like before? I’m so nervous about starting my period early and not being prepared (I wear tan pants to work so it would suck!). I’m just trying to get a little insight on to what I could possibly expect. Thanks!!!

I always get mine on the 4th day of white pills. So if I start the white pills on Sunday, my period starts Wednesday morning of that week.

It will take a bit to get regular, but should start about 3 days into your “white pill” week.

@brush1027: your period will start during the white pills what day varies person to person

@Tmpalm: This. So far it’s literally like clockwork. I can even pinpoint the exact hour haha. Everyone is different, but I know for most it’s between the 3rd and 4th day of taking white pills.

I always got mine on the Tuesday after I started the white pills. I started my pills on a Sunday, so I guess the 3rd day into the white pills.

I ALWAYS get mine the 4th day of the placebo pills (I start pill packs on mondays, so that is always Thursday). It is wayyyy lighter and no cramps and only lasts 3 or 4 days…compared to before I started taking BCP when it lasted a week or up to 2 weeks and I had debilitating cramps that would make me pass out at work -_- lol. I wouldn’t worry about it sneaking up on you in your tan work pants, either. Just wear a panty liner on the wednesday or thursday…it is soo light compared to normal, you’ll see. For me, it is so light that I don’t even have to wear anything at night cuz I’m horizontal lol.

I’ve been taking it for 11 years, and I’ve always gotten it on the 3rd or 4th day of the placebos. I can always tell when I wake up whether it will be that day. Don’t know how to explain it, just a weird, drained feeling I get.
Keep in mind that when you start birth control, or switch brands, it may take a couple months for your periods to regulate. It could be heavier, lighter, longer, shorter, or non-existant even for the first month or two.
