Hi,normally after 21 tablets you should have your periods in between.Wait for total 7 days after your last pill normally you will have bleeding.If not go for pregnancy test to confirm that you are not pregnant.any pills are not effective 100 % in first cycle.So you need to be careful.bye.

is it right to take the next pack of althea pills on the first day of menstruation even i did not completed the 7 days of what they called the seven days free pills period/

Hi Doctors. I have been taking Althea Pills for more than 2 years now. My menstrual period has become normal and regular. Then January of this year, I have decided to stop and take a rest from the pill, thinking that it could regularize my menstrual period (I was told that pills could regulate menstrual period). I got my period for the month of Feb (normal and regulard flow) but still not have it from March to present. I have been engaged sexually with my partner but only oral, though there s one time when he almost penetrated inside me. But it happened only once. The actual protected sex we had happened this month (May) and we used a condom. Im afraid that there could be pre-cum when he almost penetrated and there s a chance that Im pregnant. Please advise if I should continue with my pills and explain the delay of my period. Also, is there a chance of me getting pregnant through pre-ejaculation?

Hi Doctor, it is been three months since I have a surgery to remove only the fibroids. After my first menstrual cycle I had 7 days of bleeding which I had to wear pads. It was not heavy, when I went to see my gynecologist he put me on birth control. I began taking it two days before my menstrual period. I can say I do not have my period, but I still have painful cramps. Why do you think because I am very concerned about that.

Hi doc. Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex on december 25 2013 at around 3am. I have menstruation on that day and we both know that he ejaculated inside me. So in december 25 at 1pm I took 4 nordette pills. And on december 26 at 1pm I drink it again. My menstruation became light. On december 29 i had blood and i guess its withdrawal bleeding cause its brownish in color.. and lasted for about 4 days. How can it will affect my menstruation cycle? Thankyou!
