thank you for your query
i went through your query, you should not continue the tablets as you mentioned above. after the dosage of your 1 month pills you should stop you will get your mensturation you can wait for 4-5 days after stoping the tablets, you will get withdrawl bleeding, then on 5th day you can start the tablets again. if you didnt get bleeding you have to consult your gynaecologist to rule out other causes.

thank you
