I ran out of refills and so by the time that a new refill was prescribed a week had already passed that I was without taking birth control. I've been on it for four years and not once has this happened. The doctor told me to start them the Sunday after i got them, I am supposed to get my period next week but since I went a week without taking them is it still going to come? I don't take the placebo pills I just don't take any the week of my period.
