Eh I’d be even wary of that. The pill artificially regulates your cycle and the “period” is not an actual period it’s just withdrawal of the artificial hormones. Why not just take provera to induce a period and hopefully jump start your cycle? I’d be looking into other ways to regulate my cycle such as acupuncture perhaps vs puting more hormones in while your body is just trying to regulate itself.

when I went off the pill I didn’t have a period for 9 months.  I went on the pill for 1-2 cycles, went back off, and my period returned.  I think it’s the equivalent of turning your computer off and on, lol.

So, yeah, that may work.

I had to go on it prior to IVF (starting the drugs tomorrow, went off the pill on Tuesday and my expected was Friday and it came…. Friday.

Sure, BCP can force a withdrawal bleed and possibly start a new cycle since your hormones are suppressed. But that is the other issue I would be worried about….BCP can over suppress your ovaries and make it even harder for them to stimulate follicles for ovulation.

Ask about provera instead.

happilywed1066 :  the standard here in Canada is to do 10 days of progesterone and then wait 0-14 days for a withdrawal bleed and lining shedding. I have not heard of anyone prescribing/using BCP as a way to induce a bleed but depending on the pill you were given it’s possible it’s pretty much 100% progesterone
