Can you take active bc pills while on your period?

basically, I had intended on skipping my period this month using my birth control pills (tricyclen lo 28 day) to do so. Well it didn’t work and my period ended up coming so now I am still on the first week of my new pack of pills but I have been on my period since yesterday night (oct. 16) so I am unsure of whether or not I am supposed to continue taking the pills or if I should stop. I am on my fourth day of the pack.  Also will this mess with my cycle ? If this has happened to anyone, please let me know how you handled it.

    Keep taking them.. there are no cycles with the pill.

    Carry on with the packet.

    You don't have a cycle when you're on the pill. It'll resume at some point when you stop taking it.
