I've only been on birth control pills for two and a half weeks & I've already started my period... which pills do I take now? I'm taking Microgestin Fe 1/20 & there are 21 white pills & 7 brown. Do I continue to take the white pills or do I start the brown ones. I started the pack on a Sunday & I still had my period at that time.
You never alter your pill schedule because of bleeding. Your body is just getting used to it. You stay on the white pills until you take them all, then start the brown ones. Its not called your period now, its breakthru bleeding. Your period will happen when you are taking the brown pills.
