This is a very longwinded question, so please bear with me.

Customer Question

this is a very longwinded question, so please bear with me. My birth control pills usually take me through four weeks without any spotting or period whatsoever. However, recently, I took them for three weeks, and noticed that on the fourth day or so of the fourth week, I noticed blood. In an effort to combat my period because I didn't want it to happen this weekend, I started a new package of fresh pills. Is this okay? And if so, will it stop my period?

Hello and welcome. I'm Dr. Chip

If your pills are a combination of an estrogen and a progesterone then most likely starting a new package will prevent you from having a period. No real harm done by doing this.

Please let me know if you need any more information.

When will my period stop?

I have been taking pills from the new package for about two days now.

Yes--it should stop by tomorrow.
