TriSprintec: Missed pills third week


Q: I'm on TriSprintec. I forgot to take the last two active pills (Friday and Saturday). On Sunday morning I had sex, and that night I saw blood, like the start of my period. I took the remaining two active pills. This morning (Monday) there is still blood, so probably my period. I just read the instructions for trisprintec online; it says I should have thrown out the pack and immediately started a new one. So now I'm not sure if I should start a new pack today or wait til Sunday to start a new one--since I took those two and seem to have my period.
