"I'm planning on having sex with my boyfriend in a couple of days, but I'm due to get my period. My friend said she would give me one of her patches, so that I don't get my period in the next couple of days, and then I can take it off a couple of days later. I've been reading some other posts here, and I'm scared that I might harm my body or start bleeding irregularly since I've never been on birth control and don't plan on using after this time."

"Hi, I recently decided to try and skip a period. I am on Nuva Ring and instead of taking it out when i was supposed to, I just put a new one in. It was working, until this week when I got some spotting and bleeding. Is this normal? Will it go away? Is the birth control still effective?" -Erica, Aurora, OH
