I took the first white pill of LoLo Estrin yesterday and woke up to a period today (supposed to take second white pill today) ... Can I skip the second white pill and the two brown pills to avoid my period from continuing or is it too late?

No, skipping them won't change anything. You should finish them, as you are supposed to and then start the next pack, when you normally should.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of oral contraceptives as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, weight gain, breakthrough bleeding and PMS-like symptoms.

Is there anything else I can help with?

This is my first month taking Lo loestrin. I took my 2nd white pill last night and today around noon I got my period. I took the 1st brown pill tonight my normal time but wondering if I was supposed to take it or start a new pack?

You continue the pack, until finished, then start a new one.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

This is my first time taking BC. I misunderstood my doctors explanation of how to take the pills and not get a cycle on the weekend by starting the pills the first day of my cycle. So, I started my cycle on Friday and instead of taking the 1st pill in the pack (under the Sunday column) I started at the first Friday pill. Now I am on Week four and took the 1st pill and my cycle has started AGAIN. (Just had it 2 weeks ago when I first started the bills). So, I have 5 blue pills in the week 1 row and 2 blue 2 white and 2 brown pills in the week 4 row. What should I do? Stop taking them? Finish all the blue pills first then take the white and brown ones? Please help me!!
