the second week. i thought that i start cound 7 days after my period come. i had sex after i started the pack. now am off the pills for 5 days and my period didn't come. last month my period came after 7 days.
I'd wait until the full 7 days is up, then start another pack. If you period doesn't show up in those 7 days, still start another pack, and you can do a pregnancy test a week after your period should have started. Be sure to do it first thing in the am. You were protected for the 7 days you should have been off the pill, but then the next 7 you weren't because you didn't start the pill again. Chances of you being pregnant are there. If you don't get your period next time, see a dr.
I am a bit confused about how you are taking your pills. Mercilon is a 21-day pill you take one each day for 21 days, followed by 7 days when you take no pills then you start the next pack. The only time you take the Pill in relation to your period is when you first start the pack-you either start on Day 1 (the same day your period starts) or the first Sunday after your period starts. After that, you pay no mind to when your period comes. You take the 21 days of pills then dont take any for seven days (and your period will eventually happen during this week, but it may not at first, but still, you dont alter the way that you take the tablets) then start your next pack after the seven days off. Once you start, you dont alter the way that you take them. It doesnt matter when your period comes. It may be irregular in the beginning but you dont alter the way you take the pills. You take the 21 pills, 7 days off them start the new pack no matter what your body is doing!! Eventually your body will regulate out and your period will come during the "off" week. I hope this helps. I dont think Drs should give 21 day packs to women new to the Pill. It s easier to have the 28 day packs with the seven "reminder" pills. If you have trouble remembering when to start your next pack, ask your Dr about a Pill with a 28 day regimen.
