Brief Answer: stop once cycle completes. restart normally Detailed Answer: Hi, thanks for the information. The pills contains hormones and the levels will match our normal body values and rhythm.So you should not start new pack without giving break but if you want to postpone the periods the hormonal pill with only progesteron can be continued with your doctor's advice. Since you had already taken without break, no need to worry for now. Stop the drug once its 3 weeks are over and follow the instructions carefully next time (cycle) Hope this helps you. Feel free to ask if any related query and I will be glad to answer them. If satisfied close the query and write a review as well. Wish you happy life. Regards

Brief Answer: wait till your new period starts.Use condoms Detailed Answer: Hi thanks for clarifying. Now you should wait for your menstrual periods to start and then restart from the 5th day of bleeding/cycle. Till then you can use barrier methods like using condoms. Hope this answered your query and clarified the doubts. Wish you happy life and good health. Regards
