I got my period as scheduled, but was wondering if i should take the active pill.
If everything arrived on time you should be o.k. without the missing pill. If it has been three days you may mess up your cycle if you take it now. My advise--- skip it and continue as is, especially considering it was the last one anyway. Hope this helps and keep a close eye on those pills next month.
The last active pill is a very important pill to miss because it increases the length of your pill free interval... and increases the risk of ovulation.
My advice would be to ring and check with your doctor what you should do.
(I would only have a 7 day break (not 8) and take that active pill a day earlier than you are due to start.)
Hope this helps.
