First off, let me say Happy Christmas!

Secondly, I moved pills last month from Yasminelle to Zoely. I took my pill free week and then started on my new pill after the 7 days. I've now finished the pack and took my last inactive pill last night, I still have no period.

Zoely only has 4 inactive pills and it's a lot higher in hormones than my last one. Is it normal to skip your period in the first month like this? I use condoms with the pill and to my knowledge nothing has gone wrong when using them. I'm pretty scared and don't know what to do!

Should I start taking my active pills tonight regardless? Seeing as it's Christmas I won't be able to get to a drug store today to buy a test.

Any advice would be great!

HI Miss_Stress,

You absolutely should start your new pack on time. Taking the first pill of a new pack when it's supposed to be taken is really important.

It does sound like you're body is adjusting to the new pills, which would certainly explain why you didn't have a withdrawal bleed.

I've just noticed that I'm having some pink when I wipe. Maybe this is going to be all the withdrawal bleed I'll ever have this month!

Will take a test just to be safe, although I'd be pretty shocked if it was positive given how careful I am generally.

Thanks!
