Should i start a new pack of birth control pills or continue using the one I am currently on. I started my period 2 weeks early which has never happened before. I am normally extremely regular but this last week i forgot to take my pill for 4 days and now

In brief: I

I would probably recommend just starting a new pack.
The absence of the pill for 4 days triggered the withdrawal bleeding. You should also plan on a back-up birth control method such as condoms or the morning after pill.
