Hello, Start taking the medication as soon as possible since 8th will be too late. The medications are fine. Once you stop taking medications, your periods will arrive in a week.

Start the medication right away. 8th will be too late and you will get periods despite taking medicines. Your doctor has given you correct prescription. Continue it till you want postponement. After stopping meds, your periods will come in a week
