Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

If it's has been less that a few days ("recently") then consider taking emergency contraception. Your pharmacist can help you with this.

If it has been longer than that there isn't anything you can do. Start a fresh pack of pills per your pharmacist's instructions and don't forget them anymore - set an alarm on your phone so you don't forget. If you don't get your period when expected you can test for pregnancy.

Good luck!
