Hi Jubie

Thanks for your post! 

It's very important to never miss a pill. But missing one or two pills is safe if you took all three at the same time and you did.  If you ever miss three pills or more you are not safe but one or two is ok. 

There should be no need to take emergency contraception - in fact, it may disrupt your cycle. So keep taking your remaining pills at the same time every day and you will be fine.
