Missed a few birth control pills

Patient: Missed a few birth control pills. Now I have my period. So do Ifinish taking them or stop and start a new pack when my period ends?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.You have to start a new pack ideally on day 2 or day 4 of your cycle. This will be effe ctive enough in preventing a pregnancy and avoiding the breakthrough bleeding. Kindly make sure you do not miss any active pills over the next cycles.Hope this helped.Regards
