ok ill try to be clear as possible. my gf is on the pill and she was 3 weeks late on her period and because of that she ended up starting it on may 4 and she was supposed to start it on may 11th. everone said it was normal it just happens sometimes. i am going to see her on the 2330 and was wondering if she is going to have her period during that time frame. she continued taking the pill everyday so that means when she was on her period due to it starting earlier she wasnt taking the sugar pills. so, since she took her sugar pills starting on the 11th does that mean she will have her next period 21 days after the 11th or 21 days after the 4th? hope i was clear thank you!

Irregular period

I am a little confused by your post. Is this her first month on birth control? She needs to be taking her pills as the way the directions are regardless of her period. You are suppose to get your period during the time that you are taking the placebo pills. If she started taking the placebo pills on the 11th that means that she has seven days of them. After the last pill you start counting forward 21 days and that should give you an estimate. How come she didn't start taking the placebo pills until the 11th?

sorry to confuse. she has been taking the pill for about 5 months now. she was 3 weeks late for some reason and basically skipped one cycle. because of that her next period started may 4th, instead of may 11th so she wasnt taking the placebo pills during her actual period which started the 4th. her sugar pills started the 11th which was when she was supposed to get her next period. so i am lead to believe that her next period will be about 21 days after the 11th? which would be about the 31st i believe. thanks

actually she might want to call her doctor and let her/him know about her late period, sometimes it's common to happen during the first month or two on the pill, but normally not the fifth month

she called and talked to her gynocologist. the doctor said to just keep taking the pills. doc said it happens sometimes and is a freak thing but not to worry about it.

so that would mean her period should come 21 days after the 11th then?

she started on the 11th, so you add seven for the sugar pills, that would be may 18th, so some time 21 days after may 18th she should get it

sorry to confuse you! thank you for your help. but see she started her period on the 4th but her sugar pills didnt start until the 11th. so does that mean her next period is 21 days after the 4th or is it still 21 days after the 11th even though she already had her period. thank you again i am sorry to be so unclear!

i stand by what i said above, 21 days after the 18th
