... taking the 7 dark green pills; should I take active pills from a new pack until my period hits, and then switch to the dark green pills?
Hey, sounds like you are new to these pills, this is a small tutorial for newbies. Always take the first 21 active pills properly, by starting on the first Sunday of your period or the 5th day after. Take them as close to exactly 24 hours apart as you can. After you have completed the first 21 active pills correctly, you are safe from pregnancy even during the phase where you are taking the inactives. You should start your inactive (dark green pills?) following the actives, and may have a late starting period, or even skip a period, the pill is regulating your own hormones, you may start on the last inactive, you should still start your new pack after 7 days of inactive, whether or not you do cycle, unless you think you might be pregnant. The pattern should be, take 21 actives, then 7 inactive,then start new pack, always remember to get your new pack a day or so early so you have it and can start it on time. Do not wait for your period to come on to start the inactivesinactive you should start them now.
