I’ve been on the pill for four months now and this month I got my period a week before I was suppose to. I got my period last Saturday, and took my last active pill this past Wednesday. I’m wondering if I should start my new pack as soon as my period is over or wait until my sugar pill week is over? Further, am I still protected from pregnancy?
Hello. I have a similar situation. I began a very light period this past Saturday while still having 2 more days of active pills. It’s been three days of this light period (brown blood); just began placebo week today. I’ve been on the pill for 2 years and my period has always started between days 3-4 of placebo week. It’s weird but looks like a normal period. I’m worried because it has never happened before. Hopefully it’s one of those breakthrough bleeding situations.
From other posts, I read recommendations about continuing the routine you have with your pill cycle: finish placebo week, start the next pack the day you’re supposed to. Maybe use barrier contraception as well to be sure. Hopefully it normalizes the next cycle! Hope this helps.
