    Hey everyone.

    I was wondering can you take your pill a few days early when you have just come on your withdrawal bleed to stop it.
    I came on my bleed yesterday but have got to go to a wedding on Saturday which I didnt realise and really do not want to be on. So can I start my pill today instead of Monday and just not have sex for a week until it is protected again?
    Any advice would really be appreciated

    If you start your pills again early you'll still be protected (at least 21 days of pills taken correctly, followed by a break of 7 days maximum = protected) but you may not stop bleeding. If I do this it doesn't make my withdrawal bleed any shorter at all.
