There is no special pill for 16 year olds. In general, all combination birth control pills decrease menstrual flow and cramps.

Can you start to take the pill at 12 years old?

No a thireteen year old should not be taking birth control. That thought should not enter your mind you are too young for a relationship involving sex. 13 is too young. Thirteen may be too young for having sex, but it's been known to happen to kids at 10 or 11 years of age. I can't name any specifics, but I've heard it's been known to happen at that young age. So, to answer the question, first of the 13 year old a boy or a girl? Secondly, if this boy or girl is having sex, then yes, a birth control should be necessary unless (if girl) you want to get pregnant or (if boy) you want to get a girl pregnant. Does that help or at least make sense?

Can you switch the day you start your birth control pills?

Yes, you can. To change the day you start your birth control pills, you will cut short your placebo/sugar pill week or pill free week. For instance, if you normally start the new pack on Sunday and want to start on Wednesday, you'll take your placebo pills on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, discard the old pack, and start the new pack on Wednesday. As long as you don't go more than seven days without an active pill, you will have no interruption in protection.

When do you start your new pack of birth control pills?

You start your new pack of pills when you finish your old pack. Lets say you had you last pill on a Wednesday, you then start your new pill on Thursday. If its your first pack you have ever taken then you either start your first pill on the day you start your period or on the Sunday during your period. At first you period will not go with the pill correctly; it my take a month or two for your period to adjust.

When you switch birth control pills are you still protected immediately?

As long as you start the new pack of the new pill on time, there is no interruption in protection.No. If you finished a pack of the old kind, and then started a pack of the new kind, and didn't go more than seven days without taking an active pill, then there's no need for a back up birth control method.
