switching pills

okay so this is kind of a confusing story. so iv'e been taking tricyclen lo for the past 3 months, anyways when i got to the end of the third week on the pill i decided i would just continue onto the next pack until i got my period instead of taking the sugar pills. when i did get my period i started the sugar pills, so now my pill cycle is all messed up. on top of that, im starting a new pill called Demulen 30. It says to start the pill on the first day of my period, but since the last pack of pills i was on is messed up, i should really be on my second week of pills and not my third which my last pill of that pack is tonight... just wondering when i should be starting this new pack of different pills? should i just stop the pill and wait for my period? (im not using it for birth control) or do i start it now?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

I think it's a good idea to ask your doctor or pharmacist about this. Some b.c. pills have varying amounts of the hormone progesterone in them and it's best for an expert to give you this information.
