This is not designed to improve your acne. There are other medications that can help with acne. This type of birth control is very good provided you take the pill at the same time everyday. If you cannot do that then discuss alternatives with your doctor. My first source gives you a list of side effects. Also read the review that is attached to my source. It lists changes in the person's periods. My second source gives a more complete list of side effects. Answered by Merri Aragus 6 months ago.
How often should i have a period when taking cyclafem 1/35 birth control?
Asked by William Springfield 6 months ago.
Probably every 28 days, although some women don't get regular periods even when on the pill. Normally you will start bleeding on the third or fourth day of the placebo week, which is the last week in the pack. Answered by Elaina Firth 6 months ago.

Talk to a doctor, or planned parenthood, wherever you got it so long as it is legitimate. There are a million places you can ask actual professionals that will be completely confidential.

Is it okay to skip the week of inactive pills on birth control?
I'm on Cyclafem 1-35-28. Weeks 1-3 are pink and the last week is light-green. I am going to be at someone else's house that Sunday when I'm supposed to start and was wondering if I could skip them?
Asked by Jean Reifel 6 months ago.
As long as you can remember to start on a new pack of pills the following Sunday, there is no harm in skipping that last week. That last row of pills are just reminder pills; there are no hormones or active ingredients in them. Just remember to start your next pack of pills the following Sunday!

I went from a low dose birth control to a high does (the cyclafem) in January, I had just recently lost my virginity but was still having my period, when my sugar pill week came around I had my lightest period only 2 days. Then i took it the next month, had PMS, super sore breasts on the week I was supposed to, slight cramping, and a lot of discharge. I got nothing, absolutely no period? But then my sore breasts stopped, no cramping, and my discharge went back to normal. I have no weight gain, or sore breast now, so is this just the side effects from taking on a new birth control?

Yes my dear, it's just side effects of the pill. Answered by Willie Yerian 6 months ago.

PREGNANT OR STRESS! Hi, I am now completing my second month of the birth control cyclafem 1/35 (28). My first month taking this pill I had sore breasts and had my period for only 2 days (this was during the placebo week of my first month). I had switched birth controls because my previous one was giving me 2 week periods, and you can imagine the stress I had when I only had a period for 2 days... Anyway, during this placebo week (2nd month) I haven't received my period. Today is Thursday and I begin the new pack on Sunday. I am nervous because I had sore breasts at the beginning of the week, just like normal, and then I had heavy, white discharge, just like normal, but I still haven't gotten a period. I am sexually active, but I just recently lost my virginity. I haven't had sex in a month, and when I do, he wears a condom, pulls out and then I'm on birth control. Is the birth control causing these weird symptoms? Is it common for people to miss their period or have an irregular period on Cyclafem 1/35? Am I stressing for no reason? Please don't post the link for the side effects to the drug. I'm aware of them, I just need reassurance. Thank you. Answered by Jolyn Brookhart 6 months ago.
I think you are stressing for no reason. This is your 2nd month on this brand of birth control pills. I believe what you are saying is you are concerned because you are not starting your period every time the same number of days into that "placebo" week. Is that right? During that placebo week, you will never know how many days are going to elapse before you begin what "looks like" a menstrual period -- it could be the next day one time; the third day the next time; the 7th day the next time -- but at SOME TIME during those 7 days. You said today is Thursday and you still have not had a period, but you are due to start your "active" pills on Sunday. You still have 3 more days in which you might begin a period -- you see? Whatever day your period begins on, do not wait to finish bleeding -- begin your next pill cycle of "active" pills after the 7th day. Once in a while, you might completely miss a period. If that happens, just begin your "active" pills as scheduled. You don't really need to concern yourself about anything that happens during that plecebo week. At the time you begin that week, the "active" pills you took previously have already done their work of preventing ovulation. The "plecebo" week does nothing; it just allows you to "go off" the pill long enough to have a menstrual period (actually, a withdrawal symptom from the pill). Sore breasts are often a side effect (for some women) during the first 2-3 months of beginning birth control pills. You said you are on birth control, but he wears a condom and pulls out. That is all unnecessary if you are on the pill. The pill IS your protection against pregnancy and, when taken as scheduled, is just about as close to 100% as you are going to get. That's why you are taking it. The only reason you need to use a condom while taking birth control pills is to prevent an STD. Answered by Vonnie Freberg 6 months ago.
It sounds a bit like you may have a urinary tract or yeast infection (discharge) and I was told by my doctor that this can cause your period to be delayed. As far as the breast symptoms it is probably just due to the hormones in the birth control. If the concern is there you can get a home pregnancy test or go to the doctors for a blood pregnancy test just to put your mind at ease. Answered by Shila Ceraos 6 months ago.

Help me :/ Answered by Branden Delude 6 months ago.
When you first start birth control your period will be irregular meaning it won't me necissarily come at the same time as it did last month. Don't take the pink ones. Take the blue ones for the period because your period will come just wait. My doctor did say you don't even have to take the period pills because they really don't do anything. It's just there so you don't forget what days your on. Answered by Lilia Grobes 6 months ago.
You don't menstruate now that you're on the pill - hormonal birth control suppresses your menstrual cycles to stop ovulation, thus you no longer menstruate - the bleeding you get on the pill is a withdrawal bleed triggered by the drop in synthetic hormones when going from active to inactive pills. Your 'period' thus will stop coming when it would have naturally, although it's normal to experience irregular bleeding for the first three months while your body adjusts to going from a menstrual cycle to a new pattern of withdrawal bleeds. You take the pills as instructed - typically this is 21 days of active pills, then 7 days of placebo pills - you don't change what pills you take just because you're bleeding, the bleeding will eventually into the pattern in which you take the pills. I suggest you learn a little more about your birth control and how to use it correctly. Cool user image. Answered by Assunta Sarbacher 6 months ago.
