No that should be fine.

If you're worried you can follow the directions and use back up for a week of your new pill.

Switching diane 35 pills to althea pills without 7days interval
Hi im anne and im 22 yeras old. I just want to ask about switching contraceptive pills to another. Heres what happen, i take diane 35 pills and i finish 2 packs of it, i finish the 2nd pack by March 7 and then i got my period after 4 days (March 11). In my first day of period i take althea pills instead of diane 35 because i heard that diane 35 and althea has the same continent as in they are the same but owns only by different company that is why diane 35 is more expensive than althea.But i am worrying if i can get pregnant. Since diane and althea pills are the same i didnt wait for 7 days interval and had sex after my period. It is possible to get pregnant to what ive done? Because if you switch pills from different pills you need to wait again for 7 days interval before you can have sex again but me, i dont do that because again i was thinking that diane and althea are just the same thats why i didnt wait for 7days interval and take it as usual are my regular pill. i hope that someone response to me with this matter because im really going crazy thinking about that! thank you so much! or email me to here for your answer and opinion.! thank you so much!
