i am a sunday starter, i usually get my period by the time i near the green(sugar) pills but this time i got it a week earlier so i still had a couple blue (active) pills left. i didnt take it for a week. i ended my period 2 days ago, my bf & i had unprotected sex but he didnt cum in me.. is it ok to start a new pill even though i didnt finish the other one? & that its not a sunday? please help!!!
Sorry this question was not answered sooner for you. You should not have stopped taking the pills even though you got your period early. It is important to continue taking the pills regardless of whether you have your period or not. With that in mind you should probably take a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.
You can start a new packet at any time but you will need to use another method of contraception (such as condoms) for the next seven days.
If you are not clear on what to do see your doctor.
