    THeres something I don't quite understand about taking a weeks break from the pill to get my period. Do I wait just 7 days and take the pill after that 7 days (no matter if I've only had my period for two of those 7 days) or do I wait 7 days from when my period starts to take the pill again? X

    It's a 7 day break, so it lasts 7 days. If you're waiting 5 days and then 7 days, that ain't a 7 day break, is it?

    Obviously you stop taking the pill for 7 days and then restart.
