Discard them: The regimen for use of the "morning after pill", involves taking the pill, or pills, and then waiting for your menstrual period, which usually happens within a week of this sequence of pills. In the meantime, you should not continue taking any bcps. If your period doesn't come within a week of taking the Aviane pills, you should verify that you are not pregnant before resuming a new cycle of bcps.
