  • I would take a test to be sure, but yes you are supposed to continue taking the pill. You could even call your doc to be sure what they would want you to do.

  • If you started your first period after your pregnancy and this is what you are talking about then yes keep taking the next pill. Dont go off schedule. But you should take a pregnancy test if you did not get your period to make sure you are not pregnant.

  • You should continue to take your BC until you get a positive preganacy test if that's what you're after. Some women will stop having periods while taking the pill...you may be one of the lucky ones!
