I am just starting to take the pill and my period is extremely irregular. I will go months without having a period at all but I want to go ahead and start the pill. If I get my period while I'm in the middle of my active pill do I stop taking the active ones and switch to the reminder ones? And if that's the case do I start taking the active ones as soon as the reminder ones are done?
No, you do not alter your pill schedule for any reason. You just keep taking them in order as they come in the pack. In the beginning you can have irregular bleeding but by taking the hormones as they come in the pack-this is what will regulate you, so you never alter the way you take them no matter what your body is doing, bleeding or not bleeding. Eventually your period will come during the 4th week.
