I am a Sunday started for birth control. After my week of placebo pills, I had to wait 5 days to start my new pack (mess up with prescription) and I don't know what to do. I really don't want to toss out this pack and I know taking 5 pills at once isn't the smartest choice. It is late and I cannot call anyone. I also don't want my period starting at a different time because it is on such a good schedule. What should I do? Continue the pack on today (Friday) and skip the other 5 days (first pill, Sunday, to Thursday)?
I'd wait until Sunday and start with the first pill. The fact that you've been without it this long you would treat it like a new start. A condom until you've taken 7 pills.
