So I needed to skip my period for a vacation so instead of taking my sugar pills I went straight to a new pack. I skipped it the entire first week of the new pills. But the following I started spotting. It was brown and lasted from Tuesday to Sunday. Now it's Monday and I have started my actual period. But I wasn't suppose to start until next week. It's starting to confuse me. When I take the sugar pills next week will I have another period? That would be 3 ongoing weeks.
Okay wait... You say you skipped the first week of your pills or are you saying you were able to skip your period the first week? It should be the last week in the pack that are the inert pills (sugar pills without hormones) You should have went from week 3 on the old pack to week one on the new pack (skipping week 4 which is the sugar pills) If you skipped the first week of the new pack, you may not have been protected. If you did it correctly and went from week three of the old pack to week 1 of the new pack, it is not always possible to completely skip a period. One can try and sometimes it does work and sometimes it doesnt. You may have spotting or even outright bleeding. As far as what happens with the next sugar pills? It is hard to say, you might have a period, it may be only spotting or if you bled out all your going to bleed this week, you wont have one. It doesnt matter really. Just keep taking the pills correctly and your cycle will regulate out as long as you keep taking them in order as they come no matter what your body is doing.

Had spotting on the pill and then had sex the next week. I never got my period. Could I be pregnant?
