    I've been taking Yasmin pill for over 9 months and Microgynon before that.

    Never had breakthrough bleeding mid pack before but I ran three packs together (tut, tut, I know you're not supposed to) and now with 8 active pills still left to take I am on my period. (Heavy, horrible)

    Do I stop taking the pills now and have my 7 day break or take the 8 pills over the next 8 days then after that take my 7 day break?

    I think finish the pack and then take the break.
