    I have been taking the Dianette pill just for my acne for over a month now and halfway through my second strip. I took both strips together without a 7 day break however I still got a period? What does this mean? However I haven't been taking the pill at the exact same time every day I don't know whether this will have an effect

    Not taking it at the same time could have an effect but since you've only been taking it a few weeks then some side effects like breakthrough bleeding could be expected.

    Yeah I also agree don't take 2-3 pills at a time. Side effect may appear in the future.

    She's not taking two or three at a time, she skipped the break between two packs.

    As said, it's usual for it to take a few months for your body to get used to a new hormonal form of contraception.

    Is if a progesterone only pill? If not then it should be fine taking one every 24 hours, even if it's not at quite the same time every day.
