    I am currently on the pill and on my week break. The last time I took my pill was Monday and have only got my period today so that means tomorrow I’m due to start taking it again. What should I do?

    Impossible to get pregnant in a period. So just take it when your off.

    Never extend the break, take the pill after 7 days even if you're still on your period

    This is incorrect - you can get pregnant whilst on your period ( sperm live for up to 5 days) and this person is not on a period - she is having a withdrawal bleed due to pill break. Always take the pill as instructed. If combined pill do not extend pill free interval (even if bleeding) as will put at risk of pregnancy.
