Patient : I am in my 2nd month of using birth control and I missed a pill a couple of days ago. As the directions directed, the next day I took the next pill at the normal time. Since I missed my pill, I have been bleeding as if I was on my normal period. I will start my last week of normal pills tomorrow before I start the placebo pills next week. Am I ok to just start the placebo pills tomorrow and start back up the normal birth control pills the week after that?
