Patient :I started my birth control pack, but left it with my boyfriend, who I couldn't see for about 2-3 days. I missed the pill for these days and now I've started bleeding. I'm guessing this is a period, but I'm not sure whether to continue the pack I was on or to wait till the bleeding is over. I'm meeting with my gynecologist next week, but I'm not sure what to do in the meantime.
