Not Starting Until Late In The Week

Tammy Says:

I have been taking Ortho-tricyclene or the generic Tri-Sprintec for years & years but here recently instead of starting my period on Wednesdays, its Friday or even sometimes Saturday. Should I still start my new pack on Sunday????/

Yes it will regulate after the first month you start taking it if no ask your health care provider to switch you to another birth control pill if you think it's serious that you start it on the same day every month... Hope this helps!

You should start your new pill pack on the exact day you are supposed to, regardless of your menstrual cycle.

It is a hormonal based contraceptive, so it can be normal for your menstrual cycle to become irregular, even after taking it for years, especially if there have been any changes to your lifestyle or added stress.

have you contacted your doctor about it?
