User :   Hi, Today is day 1(april 15) of my menstrual cycle. For the past two months, my cycle has been a 30 day one. Now I want to prepone my next month's day 1 by 4 to 5 days. I have got a triquilar pack 21. If I start it on day 5(april 19), will my next cycle's day 1 be quickened; i.e will it be on may 0 or 11?
Doctor :   Hi
