Hello doctor,

I started to take a birth control pill. The pill name is Diane-35, it is taken for 21 days and seven days for rest. I have just finished the first pack of 21 pills, and as far as I understand, that my period should come in these seven days, right? And also I have read on the internet that if you do not wait for seven days to start a new pack and instead immediately start a new pack, you will miss your period, is it true? Is it fine to do if it is the first pack I have taken, will it mess with my cycle as I am still adapting to the actual pill? If no, is there any other way to delay or miss a period, because I really need to?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, it is correct that if you have taken these pills for 21 days, your periods are expected to come in the next few days, as it will cause hormonal withdrawal which leads to cause bleeding. It is true that if you continue to take these medicines your periods will be delayed. And if you want to delay your periods, continuing these pills without any break for the next 21 days is the best option.

The only problem which you may face with this is heavy bleeding when you will stop these after the next 21 days. You will not be messing it up with your normal cycle if you continue it for the next 21 days. Just keep one thing in mind that you should not miss any pill as this can cause bleeding or spotting in between the cycle.
