Hello, i take tri-previfem. I have for a while now but last month I accidentally skipped my placibo pills and went straight to a new active pack. I skipped my period and now I'm on the sugar pills of this pack of birth control. I was just wondering if anyone knew how I could calculate when my period may start. I know for a fact I can't be pregnant but does anyone have any ideas that could help me?

Hello, PandySue! How are you?

If you are taking the inactive tablets now, then your period should start within a day or two of taking them. When taking OCs, your period is actually caused by withdrawal of the hormones, which is why you skipped it last month.

If it doesn't start, then your hormonal balance may be off and you may need to check in with your doctor.

Is there anything else I can help with?

once you start taking the blue pills for previfem when is it normal to get your period? I've taken 3 blue pills and haven't got my period yet but I've had symptoms of it such as sore breasts and being an emotional roller coaster. I'm starting to become scared and freak out that I haven't gotten my period yet? should I be worried?! because I am.

There's no need to be worried and freaked out, if you've not missed any pills.

Some women don't get their periods, while taking oral contraceptives, as listed by the FDA. They can also cause them to be irregular for a few months.

How long have you been taking it?

I'm on Tri-Previfem and took my active pill 6 hours late one day. So I'm just wondering if that would decrease the effectiveness at all? I also started experiencing extreme lower back/hip pain a few days before the placebo pills. Would any of this have a connection?

I was wondering if it is possible to make your period come a week later with Tri Previfem, as I'll start vacation the exact week my period will start?

I accidentally took my Tri-previfem backwards this month and I just now realized it on day 26!!! I'm freaking out and incredibly afraid! I start my new pack on Sunday June 4th. So should I just start taking it New again then? I had unprotected intercourse 2 times during this month and I'm afraid I could possibly be pregnant... HELP ME PLEASE.

Hi, I have been taking the Tri-Previfem placebo pills for 5 days already. I recently realized that I was supposed to start before my period. Did I do it wrong? Will it be ineffective? I've also noticed white discharge. It doesn't bother me, but only if that's normal? I am also not having unprotected intercourse just in case.
