Hi there!

I started Mircette (BC) three weeks ago. . and I was a Sunday starter. Tomorrow I am supposed to start the placebo week however my doctor is having me start a new pack immediately. we are trying to stop my period for a while because I'm having terrible migraine headaches and we're trying to find the cause. If we stop my period and they stop, then its my hormones. Should I expect to start my period tomorrow? I assumed since this was the first month I was on it that i'll still get my period.

Hi ChicaCherryCola,
Generally, if you take your pills continuously (skip placebos), you will not have a period (withdrawal bleed) at all. However, it's more common in your first few months on birth control to have breakthrough bleeding (spotting), which can happen at any time and is normal.
Does that answer your question?
