Pill problem.......

Ok, this is a bit
I've been a bit stressed and didn't want to come on so I just started taking my next pack of pill right away thinking this would stop it, but it didn't. I came on earlier.
Is it normal to just come on if you don't have a break with your pill?
I'm sure I used to do it when I was younger so I could come on whenever I wanted!!

What kind of pill is it? If it's a triphasic one (three different types during the month) then the reduced amount of hormones at the beginning of the pack may mean that you get the bleed anyway. With these sort of pills you can carry on taking the last row of the pills from the next pack and not have a bleed.

I guess they are, they are 3 different colours!!
Should have kept taking the white ones then!!

I'm sure doctor would say you shouldn't, but I used to miss out mine for holidays, and things like that - just started the next pack straight away.... although probably best not to do it too often.
