Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.
Is this when your period is due?
It is not likely you will be able to stop your period once it has started. If you want to try, you would take four pills a day for four days. This may work. Then 3 pills daily for 3 days, 2 pills daily for 2 days, and 1 pill daily following.

I just started spotting today. My periods are irregular, especially when I am really active/training. I am not currently taking bc. I just happen to have a package I never tried and heard this might work to hold it off a few days

Any serious side effects that would make it not worth bothering?

I've never had any issues with birth control in the past
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 year ago.
none at all
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm only concerned that it be not here for a 24 hr period. Is it still required to continue taking the pills?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 year ago.
No it is not. But as I mentioned above. Its very unlikely to work. It would be more likely to help if you had two or three days advance.
