When she started, I thought the doctor said to start her with the green pills.(The OB always seems confused by our questions and in turn confuses us). She was on her period for 23 days and finally stopped while taking the white pills. Now she is going to start a new pack. Should I start her with the white ones, meaning she will be taking the white ones 2 weeks in a row? Or should I start her on the green ones and have go through them the way we did last month ending with the white pills? She is taking them in order to regulate her periods and to help the cyst go away.
Ordinarily the packs of birth control pills are set up so that you start on the outside and work your way in. The green pills are inert and should be the last pills in the pack she takes. I don't know exactly how the pack of these pills look, but you would start with the first color there is. If its white, that is where you start. You would go thru both blues before you took green. She may have bleeding at weird times until her body gets used to the hormones. I think possibly you had her take them backwards.
Skip a week then start a new pack. The green ones are inert, meaning there is no active ingredient. They are there to remind a woman to take one pill a day and allow her a withdrawal bleed. Since you did the pak backwards, you dont have inert pills this month so you need to give her nothing for a week then start the white pills, then take the light blue then the blue then the green.
