I accidentally put my birth control pack in the washing machine with a week left of pills before the placebos. i started a new pack in case those ones were ruined, so I'm wondering when my period will come. will starting a new pack make it so i skip the period in a week and get it when i supposed to with the new pack?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Most likely you might get your next periods at the end of the new pack of pills. However if there is hormonal disruption due to sudden start of new pack, there could be breakthrough bleeding or spotting in between. Visit your gynecologist if you have any abnormal symptoms developing or bleeding in between. Continue to take the pills as scheduled if you do not have any new symptom developing and wait for your periods.
