Is it safe to take second course of Nordette 21 tablet pill or must wait for periods ?

i start taking Nordette 21 tablet pill on the first day of my cycle august 1 that is wednesday,is it ok that i start on the first tablet in the blister its written there Sunday,because unlike other pills they just put numbers on it not like Nordette they write the days of the week. I only have 3 tablets left i think does it mean when i finish it all i am going to have my menstrual cycle again? My cycle is normal so i should have my cycle on september 1. Should i take another pack of Nordette after i finish the first one or i should wait for my cycle? Is it ok if i change my pill after i finish my nordette?

Welcome to HCM,

As it was Wednesday on 1st Aug, you should have started taking it with the tablet blistered against wednesday.

With numbering you may not remember whether you have taken it today/yesterday or not get, but with marking as days if you start it from the blister against same day, there will be no confusion.

Irrespective of marking, all 21 tablets are same. You should finish balance 3 tablets first and start a new pack of same or different brand from first day of your next period.

Thanks for your trust in Healthcaremagic and posting your query.

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

With good wishes,
