Patient: Can taking your birth control pills in reverse for one package, like starting at week 3 cause you to spot bleed for 2 weeks straight?
Doctor: Thank you for your query.Birth control pills should be used accurately for them to be effective in avoiding an unwante d pregnancy. When used regularly without missing from day 5 of the menstrual cycle to day 25 of the cycle, they can provide contraception of up to 95% effectiveness. Since they are hormonal pills they should be used appropriately or else they may cause hormonal imbalance & lead to intermenstrual bleeding, intermittent spotting or irregular cycles.Hope that answers your query. Have a good day.
