After my break week, I didn’t get my new pack until now, (I should’ve started it on Sunday but now it’s Wednesday) should I just start not take the pack at all for this month and wait for that Sunday after my period to actually start it again? (Fyi Im not worried about getting prego more worried about messing my period up) 💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊🍭🍭🍭🍭🍭🍭🍭❌❌❌❌

Start it ASAP. You’re bleeding will already be messed up. You should never intentionally miss pills. You don’t get a period on the combo pill because it stops you ovulating. Withdrawal bleeding on your break is caused by a drop in hormones. After stopping the pill, there is a 3-6 month adjustment period where you can get irregular bleeding, so it just doesn’t make sense to start the next time you bleed. Especially when you will be protected again in 7 days, rather than your proposed month

Definitely don’t miss a month on purpose. Missing a few days already will mess with your current schedule. Stopping short term is not worth it. Starting and stopping will only confuse your body. When you stop birth control your body will need to adjust to being off of birth control. There is a 3-6 month adjustment period. When you decide to go back on birth control your body will need to adjust to being on the brand again. There will be another 3-6, month adjustment period. It would make more sense in the long run to just continue to take your new packet of pills instead of just stopping for one month.

@Llunx_ @Pandafan1 so should I start it on the day of the week it is (Wednesday) or just start the pack from the very first pill in it? Btw; missing it wasn’t intentional but thank you for replying

If you’re pills are the same colour then you can take it either way, if they are different colours for each week then take the first pill

If you are on a pill where all the pills (except the break week) are the same color it means they are the same. Taking a ”wednesday pill” instead of a ”sunday pill” won’t make any difference whatsoever.
