    I've been taking pills back to back and recently started my break, however, it is day 5 of my break and I have not yet had a withdrawal bleed - just the littlest signs. Come Wednesday shall I start the pill again as usual or do I need to wait for a bleed???? Pregnancy is NOT an issue, I continue to take the pill to be in control of my periods!

    if you haven't had sex then I wouldn't worry, start taking your pill as normal, if you don't have a bleed the next time then see your doctor

    Regardless, you must restart the pill when the day comes, period or no period. I believe taking pills back to back can interfere with your period, but speak to your GP to clear your worries
