Patient :I have been taking birth control for over a year. I missed the first week of my birth control pills for a pack that started two weeks ago. I took two pills a day for the past week to catch up and am now on the third week of my pack. Next week I should have my period (always on Tuesday). Should I take the placebo pills or immediately start a new pack when this third week is over? Should I expect my period next week?
Symptoms: Nausea for the first few days, like when I started birth control
