... for a few days and still didnt get it. This is my first time taking birth control and the doctor said to start the pill on the 5th day of my cycle. I waited until what was supposed to be the fifth day to see if I got my period, and since I didnt on the 6th day I started the pill, Im six days in now and I got my period, I thought I might spot a little but its like normal period. Should I contiue to take my active pill s for the rest of this month and wait till i get my next period and start a new pack?
