Having sprintec but missed a pill, got periods. Continue same pill?

I ve been taking sprintec for about 4 months now. I have never missed a pill until this past week. Week 2 of my pills. I actually lost a pill so I just didn t take one one day and I got my period when I was still on the blue pills which is like a week early. Should I continue the order I am in now or start taking the white pills??

Thanks for the query.
The bleeding you got could be withdrawal bleeding due to missing the pills.
So you continue using the pills.
But as you missed one pill, the complete protection is doubtful, so use some additional method of contraception like barrier method till starting of the new pack.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
