Birth Control - Loestrin
I am currently on Loestrin, just finished my 21-days and I am suppose to have a 7-day free period where I don`t drink any pills while I have my period. However I mistakenly took a pill from the next packet (just one) and I was not suppose to, I should have started the 7-day no pill week on Sunday 10th January and that night I took a pill from the new packet.
What should I do now, should I go on with the 7-day no pill period or should I continue with the next packet??? would this mess up my period??
This is not a big deal. Go ahead with the 7-day pill-free period and start the next pack on the 8th day.
