Is it okay to take 3 pills at once?

So I missed my last week 2 pill and my first week 3 pill and only noticed this today. Can I take all 3 pills now? Can I carry on normally after this Including taking the sugar pills or should I finish week 3 pills and start a new pack immediately (skipping the sugar pills) .

Thank you for your help!!!

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

The pills must be taken as directed according to the type of birth control you are using.  If you miss pills you should not double up.  Continue taking the next pill chronologically until you finish the pack.
