Patient :I've started taking co-cyprindiol for acne treatment. I have taken the 21 days dosage and started the 7 day break a week ago. However I only started my period 2 days ago, so should I wait until my periods stopped to carry on taking the tablets, or should I take them anyway even though my period has only started recently. If I do start taking the tablets now, will it stop my period straight away? Or will it not make a difference to the length of my period?
