I ve been taking my birth control wrong for over a year I just found out. I have the 21 pill pack and I didn t know I was supposed to wait a week after finishing a pack so I would start a new pack right away. I m at the end of my pack now so should I stop taking them for a week then start again or will that mess everything up? What do you recommend?
