On the pill- confusion

    • Thread Starter

    I got prescribed the pill (rigevidon) and was told to take it for 21 days then have a lighter 7 day period, my question is: I've just finished my period so if I started taking the pill in 3 weeks(before my next period starts), then was on the pill for 3 weeks, would I go the full six weeks without a period? Or would I still, despite the pill, be on my period after 3 weeks?

    Be careful you don't get blood clots and die!

    In three weeks, you're going to have ovulated and be ready to have a period. Whether or not starting to take it then will delay it is impossible to know for certain in advance. You'd be better off either waiting for that period or starting now.

    I don't know what AccountingBabe is on...
