How to start the pill on a different day? watch

    I know this has been asked already, but i have a bit of a complicated problem with the pill! I'm
    On microgoyn 30 and I want to start taking it on a Saturday so that I miss my period at weekends (it works for me). But the problem is, is that I don't want to have my period at work on Saturday. I am due to finish my current pack this Sunday which means I will be on at the weekend (and at work). If I take it for 6 weeks with no break it works out that I am working that weekend too! How can I schedule in a break and start taking my pill on a separate day to avoid this in the future?

    Well, you are suppose to start taking the pill on the 1st day of your period, so it matches your own natural hormone cycle. If you dont do this, your hormones will clash and may go a bit wild. Like breakthrough bleeding, mood and acne. If you really wanted to start taking it on saturday that you can stop the saturday before, and then have your 7 day pill free and then restart on sat. Remember, you must take your pill at least 7 continuous days for contraceptive protection.
