    Hi! I’ve read a few stories about how your period is likely to come late on your first 7 pill free days whilst on the combined pill. I was just wondering that if this is the case, for example; if my period was due Monday, but didn’t come until Thursday (many people wrote that there’s was 4/5days late) would I continue taking pill on the Monday as required again? Even if this ‘period’ has came? Or do I need to wait and let the period finish before starting my new pack of combined pills.

    I don’t know if I’ve worded this correctly but any advice would be great! Thank you.

    Yes, regardless of when (or whether!) your withdrawal bleed has started, you need to restart taking the combined pill no more than seven days after stopping in order to keep being protected against pregnancy.
