    I've only just started the pill, I've been taking it for just 15 days now, and I didn't sync it with my period I just started taking it when I got it. If I was to back to back straight away after this 21 pack is finish will I still come on my period for this month

    Probably not.

    Things can be different when you're first taking it, but generally, if you skip a break while on a combined pill like this one, you won't have a withdrawal bleed for the obvious reason that you haven't had the interruption in taking it. Some women use this to avoid having a period when it would be inconvenient or simply to not have one.

    The main reason why they have a week-long break is that the people (mostly men) who developed them thought that women would be scared they were pregnant if they didn't have a bleed every month.
