  • Stopping Pills mid cycle

    Hey, I was supposed to have my cycle around the 20th after my white pills were done.. But I did not want to have my cycle that week because I went on vacation with my bf.. However, since then I have been cramping and having breakthrough bleeding.. I've had that for 11 days now.. And I wondered if I can just stop taking them midcycle.. And just let my cycle come on? I should add that this is my 3rd month taking these pills.. These are regular dose.. I used to take low dose..

    Edit: I also been bloating as well, so would my cycle just come on since I just been overtaking these pills?

  • This is only 1 wk left of pills.. And I'm still having breakthrough bleeding..

    • Yeah, you can stop taking the pills anytime. Just let your cycle come back on its own, it may take some time though. Just be sure to use other protection.
