Birth Control pills can be used for hormone replacement in certain situations, but hormone replacement pills can not be used as birth control pills. Consult your health care provider or pharmacist for advice specific to your situation.

What are some health benefits of birth control pills?

Birth control pills will stop the PMS if you have it and regulate your monthly cycle. This will improve you life if you have these problems like I did. Since the pill came out in the 1960's there has been debate on the effects of the pill, so there is no true answer here. I now hear the same things about hormone replacement. Talk to your doctor, look at all the facts, and do what you think is good for you.

I been on BC for two months on my second month i took all pills until i got to the sugar pills i took two of them sugar pills and didn't finish the last 3 pills sugar pills on the second suga?

You do not have to take the sugar/placebo pills if you feel comfortable doing so, and if you will not forget to start your birth control on the correct day, and if you will not forget what time you are supposed to take your birth control. It doesn't make a difference on how many sugar/placebo pills you take because they do not contain any active hormone ingredients. You are still protected from pregnancy during your placebo week if you take your birth control every day at the same time, and if you have been on birth control for at least 2 months. To be on the safe side wait 3 months, that is personally how long I waited.
