  • You just continue to take the active pills. So you take your first weeks and then you have a week without in a normal month. Just take the three weeks and then start the next pack right away.

  • Yes I think if you start on that Sunday you will miss your period. I go for three months at a time for medical reasons and it hasn't killed me yet.
