We will get the periods when we are taking reminder pills.Since it is mentioned as we need to start on the first day of period, can we skip the remaining reminder pills of the current pack and start with the new pack of the period?
This response may be a bit late but, may be useful in future.
No, you don't stop taking the reminder pills and skip to the next pack because you have your period then. (The instructions that you start a pack when you start your period is only for when you actually start taking the pill - the very first pack you start on). After that, you just keep on taking a pill a day. You will start your period when you are taking the reminder pills and it'll stop when you start taking the active pills from the new pack.
