so I called my doctor and she said to start taking my BC that night. She said it would get rid of my pain and that my period should hold back until I get to the placebo pills. Well, it didnt. I got my period on friday night, the 2nd to last pill in my 2nd week of pills. By the time it was obvious that it wasnt breakthrough bleeding, though, my gyno was closed. She is closed saturday and sunday as well. I need to know if I should open up a new pack and start fresh there tonight, since this is the first sunday after my period starts, or if I should finish up my last week in the pack and take my placebo pills next week, and just keep going like that.
Thank you so much

Keep going with your current pack as prescribed. The first month on birth control can cause some cycle wonkiness, especially if you didn't start on the first day of your period (or the first Sunday after your period started). By all means, call your doctor on Monday, but for now, continue with your current pack of pills, as you'll likely confuse your body even more by starting a new pack tonight.
