You need to take 1 tablet everyday regardless of when you get your period. This should all be explained in the package insert that came with your pills. When you finish this pack, start a new pack the following day. Do not take a break in taking the pills, and do not skip around your current pack. It's 1 pill everyday until every pill is gone, then you start your next pack.
