When Can I Switch BC Pills?

I'm currently taking Ortho Micronor. I've been taking it for 5 months now and it's giving me too many acne!!!

I want to switch to another brand. When is the time to do so? Do I need to finish the current pack I'm on?

Or can I switch in the middle of a pack?

Finish the pack you're on, then start the new pill after your next period starts.
