Instead of taking the last row of pills in my sprintec pack, I skipped and immediately started a new pack with the blue pills. I've just finished two weeks of blue pills and STILL have my period- should I take the white pills this week to try to finish my period and then take the *3rd* week of blue pills (and then start a new pack after)?

Hey it's the original poster of this thread. For clarification, I took rows 1,2, and 3 of one pack, skipped the last row, and started a new pack hoping to avoid my period. I have taken rows 1 and 2 of the new pack and still have my period. I am asking if I should take week 4 (inactive pills) to finish my period, and THEN go pack and take row 3 of blue pills. Then start another pack normally. Thanks in advance for your help:)

Hello, Katie! How are you?

Yes, sometimes trying to skip your period doesn't actually work, instead it throws your hormones off and you can experience irregular or prolonged bleeding.

The best thing to do, unless your doctor specifies otherwise, is to continue taking them in order and let the situation rectify itself.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of oral contraceptives as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and weight gain.

Is there anything else I can help with?
