  • don't worry about it just start your week break now and start the new pack 2 days early and put the sticker on it so you know the right day. If you have sex use something.....use double something for him and you like the foam or something...its not a big'll be ok

  • I don't know, you should call your doctor for this but I can say don't have unprotected sex right now till you get it situated.

  • I agree with mommy of two. I do have friends though that will just start their new pack and skip the week break so they won't get their periods if its going to interfere with plans. I don't know if that is safe or not though.

  • Honestly, it wouldn't be best for us to make that decision for you.

    My advice would be not to have unprotected sex tonight and to call your Doctor Tomorrow and ask what you need to do.

  • start the 7 days today, then start the active pills when you are due to. you should still be covered. or you can start the new pack and skip your period, but if you have already had sex since losing them i wouldnt take the new pack yet, just to be safe.

  • I agree with the lady above,
    Go and see your Dr.
    We should not make that decession for you.
