Re: Changing Starting day/Moving period date.. Help!!
You should be fine skipping, so long as you're on a monophasic pill (ie all the 21 active pills are exactly the same). What pill are you on?
As for changing: You don't have to take all 21 pills in the SECOND pack when skipping a period. So long as you took all the first pack you can take as many or as few of the second pack as you want. Most women take the entire second pack so they don't "waste" pills, but you can always hang on the the leftover pills and have them on hand as "extras" in case you ever loose a pill or anything like that. So, what you can do is take the entire first pack of pills, except the placebos. On the day you should start the placebo pills, take an active pill from the new pack instead. Take an active pill every day until Saturday, then stop. After seven days of taking no pills, start taking them again. This will be a Sunday. Your other option is that next time you have your break, instead of waiting seven days and starting your pills on Sunday, only wait five days, and start your pills again on Sunday. It's always okay to shorten your PERIOD week, but never lengthen it.
