When should I start new birth control pack after taking Plan B (at end of last pack) and it delayed my period? After period or when i normally would?

When should I start new birth control pack after taking Plan B (at end of last pack) and it delayed my period? After period or when i normally would?

Missed OCP: My question would be why did you take Plan B if you were on the pills as this should have protected you from getting pregnant. If you didn't miss any pills with the original pack of pills, i would restart the pills at the same time you would in the past. If you had missed some pills and took Plan B as a back up contraception, then you should wait and use back up protection with this cycle. ...Read more

However, adding condoms can protect against some STD diseases, and may decrease vaginal odor or discharge. ...Read more
