I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, you should continue taking them until December 26 and your active pills will finish you will get your period.

You should use a backup method like condom if you plan to have sex.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
