did i i mess up on how i was suppose to start taking it since i had to skip that sunday while i was at camp? or will i be okay?[/QUOTE]

Birth control is supposed to be started sometime during your period as this is when the hormone levels are at their lowest. By starting the pill a week later, you're more likely to experience some irregularity. It's not "bad" perse, just not recommended.

Most women start their periods 2-4 days into the inactive/placebo tablets.
