... started to get my period already so i decided to stop taking them and let my period come as if i were on the period week pills. Well my period never really came and just spotted for the next 4-5 days... if i didnt mess up my pack i would be on my week 4 starting tomorrow... should i start a new pack to stay on schedule or wait until my period really comes since i didnt start a new pack right away after messing it up like the instructions say?
Nooooooo. Why do you kids think you can take them any old way. That isn't your period its breakthru bleeding from missing the pills. You should start a new pack with day 1. You never ever alter your pill schedule because of bleeding or not bleeding. You impair your protection that way. Unless you are on the placebos it is not your period its breakthru bleeding. Use a condom until you've taken 7 active pills. You aren't protected.
