Hi this is a birth control question, I been on brith control novynette for years but i been taking on the 6th day of my period but it suppose to be the 8th day, last month i took it from the 8th day and my period came 3 days after i finish the pack, this month the 3rd day was yesterday but no period why is that??? I must say i did have sexual intercourse 2 months ago but I've had my period the month after and last month it was normal heavy, blood cluts and pain as usual so can you help me figure out whats the cause for no period now?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community for a reason why you have not started your period.

Novynette is supplied in tablet containing 0.02 mg ethinylestradiol and 0.15 mg desogestrel used for the prevention of pregnancy and the reduction of symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.

It is taken once a day for 21 days beginning on first day of menstrual period. The 21 days pill is then followed by a 7-day break, until which a new course of 21 tablets is then started on the 8th day following the 7-day break.

Anonymous, I wonder if by not taking the pill as directed, that is start the new pack on day 8 not day 6, is the reason you have not started your period. Please contact your gynecologist's office today. Explain what you have been doing and what has happened. Let us know what you find out.
