I'm on Minastrin 24 FE for birth control and was not due to get my period until next week. She showed up today, which explains the chocolate cravings I've been having and the couple crying sprees that I had ( I hardly ever cry). So now what do I do about my pills? Do I start with a new pack or keep taking the pack and finish it out even though I don't get to the placebo pills until Thursday? I was on some prednisone at the end of the year and I think it must have thrown my cycle off, even though it didn't really throw the one off last month (but I had just started the prednisone at that point).
