Hi Jodi

Thanks for your question and welcome!

Missing two pills at any time can slightly elevate your risk of ovulation - did you catch up on the two missed pills or did you not take them and begin a new pack again after the 7 day break? You should have taken the missed pills as soon as you realized you forgot them.

Since you forgot them at the end of week 4, it's likely you were covered. Did you have bleeding during the 7 days?
