I have 3 days before I am to start.should I go ahead and start my next pill pack pure complete the one I have?
Susan, regardless of whether or not you are bleeding, take the pills one per day and start the next pack when you are scheduled to. BCP's need about 3 months worth of pills taken correctly to regulate the cycle, if you don't take them close to exactly 24 hours apart, it can make it a bit worse. New pill users sometimes have break thru bleeding or no period at all, just depends on the person. The best way to take these are at 24 hours apart, everyday. Give it that 3 months to regulate you.
There's probably no need to be concerned, if you just started taking the pill your body might not be used to it yet. It sometimes takes 2 or 3 packs of pills to become regulated. Continue taking the pill as directed. If after you've been taking it for awhile and you are still bleeding before you finish your pack, it could mean that it's not the right formulation of hormones for you. You may need to try a different pill, or form of birth control.
