Late Menstruation After Changing Birth Control Pills?
Hello, introduce me Early .. r nDok, I want to ask .. r nI use contraception in the form of birth control pills, I used to take trinodiol pills, then on the advice of my sister I changed the diane pills which only 21 days after the diane pills ran out I immediately continued trinodiol again without pause, but now it’s the 27th and my menstrual cycle should be on the 15s, so it’s almost 2 weeks late. And now I only feel the symptoms of menstruation like body aches, abdominal pain, and back pain and it has been 1 week. Is it because changing birth control pills without a break has an effect on my menstrual cycle? thanks.
Birth control pills are a method of contraception where you take a pill containing the hormones estrogen and progestin every day so that it provides protection from pregnancy. There are several types of birth control pills, some of which are 21 or 28. In the 28 pill packages of birth control pills, 7 of them are placebo pills or empty pills to provide an opportunity for menstruation.
If using 21 pills, after they run out of 21 pills it is necessary to give a 7 day pause in order to be able to menstruate and then continue with a new package of 21 pills. So if you previously took 21 pills of birth control then immediately continued with the new package, late menstruation could be caused by this. Try to use only 1 type of birth control pill regularly so that the menstrual cycle can also be maintained or you can choose another contraceptive method which of course has its own advantages and disadvantages that are tailored to your needs.
