because theres the red section which I thought was when it started but there are the two white pills before the red section and two beige pills still in the red section... so when does it actually start?
This pill is very confusing because it starts the inactive pills before the red zone. They don't offer much in the way of directions. The red zone is when your period comes, the 2 pills before the start of the red zone are sugar pills (inactive) and the red zone is 5 sugar (inactive) pills followed by 2 hormone (active) pills.. if you take the next pill following the arrows on the pack, it is a active pill which will result in only having 3 days (approximately) of bleeding instead of the usual 5-7... Don't worry about if you're bleeding or not if its time to start a new pack you should start it. Your period isn't really important when you're on the pill. As long as you take 21 active pills and then 7 inactive pills that is the correct order.
