What if you get your period after just taking the last active pill of your birth control?

I took my last active pill just last night, at the same time everyday, but later on that night I got my period. I figured that it wasn’t right, since it usually takes a few days into the placebo pills to finally get my period. So, yeah, is that a problem or does that happen?

Answer #1

It does happen. I’ve had it happen, not often but it does. I usually get mine after the fourth pill of my inactive, but once or twice I got it almost immediately. It’s nothing to worry about.
