    Hi everyone.

    So I've recently been prescribed with Cilest for contraception purposes. When in with the doctor he advised to wait and start taking it the 1st day of my next period which although slightly annoying that I have to wait so long but if it's the rules then it's the rules.

    BUT.. I was reading through the leaflet and it says I can take it at any point in my cycle, I just won't be protected for the first 7 days. As I was unaware of this at the time of seeing the doctor I didn't get to ask this question ... My period is due around the 24th/25th June, if I start taking it now will it stop my period and I'll just get my withdrawal bleed in the pill free week? Or will I still get my period plus the withdrawal bleed because I wouldn't have been on the pills for a full 21 days yet?

    Not sure that made sense - hope it did. Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks

    Hi, I'm not on the same brand as you but I'm on microgynon 30 and I have seen with every brand you are recommended to start on the day of your period so I'd wait it out. Good luck.
