Birth control pills and methods of ingestion

Patient : If i take the last pill of a 21 day birth control pill regiment on a Friday and i am told to skip 7 days does this mean i take the first pill in the new pack the following Friday or saturday?
Doctor :   You need to start the next pack on the following friday. Hope this helps.
