One of my friends is on the Tricyclen-Lo Birth Control Pills. She accidentally had an active pill when she was supposed to have sugar pills for 7 days.So basically she ate regular active pills for 21 days, and on the 22 day instead of eating a sugar pill, she started her next pack. Should she continue to have the active pills? or just wait and start the active pills 7 days later and disregard the pack which was started?

She might as well continue with the new pack that she's started and just skip this month's period - much simpler.
