Hi misscaoimhe

Thanks for your question!

To be on the safest side, when three or more pills are missed, the person needs to throw out the pack and start a new pack straight away while using condoms for at least a week after. It's too late to make up three pills by taking them at a later date.

Therefore her risk has been raised since she had sex at this time. To what extent we can't say. She can call her pharmacist for advice on what to do regarding her pills but she needs to keep taking them for now.
