Starting placebo pills after taking twenty four active pills
Patient : I am on birth control and I was on the 3month plan where I take active pills for 3months and then a week of placebo pills. I experienced bad side effects and I don't want to do it again this month, I have taken 24 active pills and I want to start placebo pills today, I should have taken them friday but I took active pills fri, sat, sund. Will it be an issue if I take the placebo pills now and then start active pills again as normal??
