My cycles are normally anywhere from 20-30 days... but USUALLY are 25-ish. Now that I'm on the 28 day pill pack (aviane/alesse), AF still shows her ugly head on day 25-27. What the heck?! I've tried Yasmin in the past, but it was way too strong for me. I like this one (I've used it before Ben came along as well), but it's just annoying that I can't seem to time it to avoid the weekends.

How long have you been on this pill?? It might just take your body a little longer to adjust.

What day are you starting your pill?? I think some of them you can change the day that you start your first pill. Maybe you could do that also.

Yeah, the last time I was on it, I used it for nearly 2 years. This time it's been almost 8 mos. I've tried adjusting the day (I start on Sat rather than Sun like most people), but it's still not predictable. Sometimes it'll be Sunday after, sometimes it'll be Thurs before... ya' know? It's like I'm not even using it at all. I suppose as long as I don't get pg, it doesn't really matter.

It just works that way for some people.

I've never had that problem. I've always gotten my period 2-3 days after taking the last active pill.

You might want to talk to your doctor about this problem. There might be a better pill out there for you.
