Default Girly Question.....

In a nut shell, I am on a high dose birth control pill and missed one pill and got my period two days later I am contemplating if I should just go off the pill for a few months or if I should contact my doctor to switch pills. Has anyone had to deal with this issue before? My new coach measures me and notices that I gain a lot of water during my period week, but was wondering if I was not on the pill if my body would do the same thing. If you don't want to post on here, I am happy to talk on a private message. Thank you for anyone's help in advance!

Even on bcp my period was completely erratic the first few months of ip.
I would stick with it if it is you birth control method of choice. Things will "even out".

I'll second that periods are wonky just because of the nature of this diet. I would not go off my birth control based on an IP coach's advice, even if you swelled up like a balloon with water around your period it's just water -your weight loss will show in the following weeks.

I've seen many recommendations from people to be DOUBLY careful about birth control when on IP - estrogen stores in fat cells so it is being released in your system as you drop weight and can make you more prone to pregnancy.

I was told that you should use multiple methods because the BP is not as affective on IP. I also should warn you that I got pregnant with my first by only missing one pill...and I was NOT on be careful..
