If I begin taking my Birth control Pill 2 weeks after my period started on a sunday start will I be able to skip the next cycle

User avatar If you would like to skip the next cycle, begin taking your birth control pills on the sunday following your period, as instructed, and instead of taking the placebo pills at the end of the pack, just move on to your next pill pack.
