I got on birth control about a week after my period. I ended my period on a Sunday, then went to the doctor the on Wednesday and got the prescription, then started taking the pill that following Sunday. I have 4 pills left in the pack and I got my period today. Is this normal? I know the pills are working because I've had sex without other forms of contraception besides my birth control and I'm obviously having a period which means I'm not pregnant. Should I start a new pack on Sunday or continue to take the sugar pills even though my period will be almost over by then? Will I not be protected the week I take the sugar pills? Anything helps, thank you!
