So I just started taking ortho Tri cyclen this month, I finish my period the 26 of October & got prescribed the 28th so the doctor made me catch up, I've reached the pills meant for my period. And I haven't gotten it so do I still take them or start a new pack?
The sugar pills are there for you to have your period that week. After you take all of them, you start the next pack. You aren't supposed to have your period before you start them. Just take the pills as they come in the pack and never alter them. Your period is not important related to whether you take a certain pill or not.
