  • Yep. Keep taking it everyday and start your next pack when you run out of this pack. Don't skip any days or you can expose yourself to a higher chance of pregnancy.

    You may notice some breakthru bleeding due to the higher level of hormones.

  • The times I did that, it made me throw up. But the directions state that you should resume the pills as normal the following day (if you can stomach it). Otherwise , skip tomorrow and resume the day after.

  • I'm guessing you will have your period a day early because you will stop your active pills one day early. So, probably nothing healthwise.

  • Just resume them as normal
