Ocp and period: I would advise you to continue the pack and hopefully your period stops. If it does, I would recommend NOT to take the last week of your pack (sugar pills) and go right into the first pill of your next pack and continue as normal. If period does not stop in 5-7 days, please see your gyn provider. Hope this helps. Good luck.
