Can I pick up where I left off re: birth control pill?
Patient :I take one of the 3-month birth control pill packs and this cycle I decided to go off the pill early (by about 2 and a half weeks) so that I'd get my period before some big events later this month (a wedding, a vacation, etc.).
I stopped taking them last Wednesday and my period is now over and I am wondering whether I should simply pick up where I left off (with Thursday's pill) or go pill-free for another few days and pick up with a new pack on a Sunday as is more standard?
