Irregular Bleeding On 28 Pack of Pills

I have had very regular periods the past three months on the 28 day pack of pills and all of the sudden, this month, I started one week early. Should I keep taking them every night the way I normally do? Or would it be best to stop them and start somewhere else in the pack? Thanks!

Keep taking your pills as normal. Don't change and start somewhere else in the pack.
