hello and welcome to healthcare magic forum!

Actually if it was a safe period then you wont be needing a contraceptive but if it is not then it's okay to take it according to the instruction on the pack , which is 4 pills usually ,however please do conatct the nearest physician for safety of avoiding any side effect.

also a sincere advise is not to use too many contaceptive pills which cause hormonal problems later.

wishing you good health!
