Stopping pill a week early

Patient: If I stop taking my birth control pill (tricyclen lo) a week early, will my withdrawal bleeding happen a week early as well?

Symptoms: None

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Generally if you stop the pills a week early, the withdrawal bleeding will follow immed iately within a week. But in few cases, it may no happen so, can take more than a week or even miss the next cycle due to sudden hormonal change.Hope this helped.Regards
