I was visiting my boyfriends family during winter break and realized I had forgotten my birth control. Luckily I had my next months' pack on me that hadn't been opened. I started on what I thought was supposed to be the dark blue pills (.250 mg norgestimate) and didn't realize until now that I was supposed to have started the light blue pills (.215 mg norgestimate). Should I finish the dark blue pills that I have mistakenly started and then start the light blue after? Will this delay my period since it will think that I will be taking the green pills next? Does this affect it's effectiveness since I'd be moving down in mg of norgestimate if i move from dark to light blue pills?
Start a new pack, now. When you mess up like that, you have to start a new pack. If you use the one that was the one you used when you were visiting, use the ones out of the pack you had at home. This will stop your period, but that isn't important, there is no reason you can't skip periods on the pill.
