I have been on Alesse 21 day birth control for

Patient : I have been on Alesse 21 day birth control for almost a year now, but for the past month I haven't been taking it. I go on vacation tomorrow and this previous Sunday I started taking a new pack of pills, but it wasn't the Sunday after my period ended, it was approximately the Sunday before my period was going to start because I didn't want it while on vacation. After starting I have had my period all week and I don't know if I should stop taking them or keep taking them. How long will my period continue before it stops and my birth control will be regular again?
