... supposed to take it a week after my period I didn't read the directions and took the first pill of my third little pack. I realized what had happened and started taking the second pill on my first pack until I ran out of the first pack. I just want to know if I've totally screwed myself or if I'm fine and should just keep on doing what I'm supposed to be doing. Also what are these white pills everyone's talking about? I never got those. And my last question is since this bc limits my number of periods per year and makes them occur after I finish each pack, should I continue taking my pills while I'm on my period or should I wait for it to stop and then restart taking them the Sunday after my period ends?
