Im on a pill where ther is 21 pills then no pills for 7 days, well for the 7 day break do i strt the nxt pack on the 7th day or on the 8th day, so im clean for 7 days, im really confused about this, and i dont think the doctor understood when i asked her, if you could please get back to me, i would really appriciate it, thanks for your time.

You would start on what amounts to day 8. So, if you're a Sunday start, you'd always take the first of seven pills on Sunday. Same for which ever day you start on.

Does that make sense?

Yes. If you finish on Tuesday, you start on the next Wednesday. That way you have your 7 day break.
