i tried skipping my period but going straight on to the next birth control packet. It worked fine for a week - but on the monday i started to get brown discharge (it usually starts on a monday).

I was told to stop taking the pills and let the period arrive. It is now saturday and all week its been brown and today its red. I have had cramps all week.

I haven't taken the pill since the start of the week. When do i start it again?
