Continuous pill use

Hi All

At my last gyne appointment I was advised to try taking the pill continuously (I was previously taking three packs back to back and then a break). Towards the end of my fourth pack I have started to have a period (something the specialist advised my happen and would indicate that continuous use may not be the way forward). Now that I have finished my fourth pack should I take a week break (as I would if taking three packs) or just continue the next pack?

I've taken my pill continuously for nearly a year and was told that if I had any spotting to have a three day break...may not be the right advice if it's more than spotting and may not be for everyone so maybe see if you can get some advice direct from your consultant?
