I started taking birth control the Thursday after I started my period. Random, I know. By then my period was already ending. I got my period on the second week of the pack, is this normal? Also, my first sugar pill is tomorrow. Since I got my period early and this is my first pack, should I start a new pack or continue to finish this pack with the sugar pills even though I got my period? Also, last question, are you protected (99%) from pregnancy during the sugar pills week? Thank you in advance. I'm new to the pill
You do not alter your pill schedule no matter if you already bleed that month or not. That wasn't your period it was breakthru bleeding. Take the sugar pills. Until you are straight skipping them won't be great. You didn't start with your cycle so now you have to get your body into this cycle. You are protected during the week of sugar pills.
