    Hi, I stopped taking the pill on Friday for a 7 day break but I’ve only just come on my period on Thursday (longer than usual). Am I still ok to take the pill again on Friday or will this mess my period week up?
    A few months ago I took it half way through the week and I was spotting for a while after.

    Yes you still should take your pill as normal even if you're still on your period.

    For most people, their withdrawal bleeding starts 3-5 days after stopping the pill in which case their period is usually not finished when they are supposed to start taking the pill once again. So it is usual for you to start the pill as you're still on your period.

    Now for messing with your period, it's not actually the period after your cycle that you get. The pill works by preventing that cycle from happening. It is withdrawal bleeding from missing the hormones from the pill that causes it. So only way to mess with that is having wrong amount of pills before one like taking 2 packs to delay bleeding because you're going on a holiday. Or accidentally forgetting the last couple pills etc.
