When I took the pill, I took it when I wasn't due for my period. We used a condom too, and all was well, but I'd like to start the pill taking, when I properly start my period.

In other words, can I stop taking the pill, so that my period will come. The day it does, can I start taking it again?

There's no risk of pregnancy as we used a condom correctly, and I've been on the pill for two weeks. It's just so that I can get it all sorted out properly.

Just continue taking the pills as you have been - stopping them and starting them again will only throw your body for a loop, and you're likely to experience breakthrough bleeding and spotting.
