Patient : I have been on the Alesse 28 day pill for 6 months now, and I've recently noticed some things. Last month my period came a day early so i just continued with the package but this month my period came today (tuesday) while i still have 2 pink pills left, after i finish the pink pills should i take all the white ones or just take them until my periods over? also would I be able to just start over? My period started today so if i just started a new pack all together would that be a bad idea because then i would have skipped the 7 white pills or a good idea because its not on schedule?
