... first day of my period to begin taking Kariva, so I started on a Monday. Will my period now be skipped for this month, or should I take a pregnancy test?
No, you will still get a period this month... sometime around the time you are taking the inactive tablets or having 7 days break.
You will however need to wait until you have taken 7 consecutive active tablets before you can rely on your birth control pills for contraception - you will need to use another method of contraception up until then.
