Hi Marlhee

Thanks for your question! 

There are many birth control pills out there, so follow the directions on your pack exactly and call your pharmacist to make sure; they can tell you over the phone what to do. 

In general, missing one pill in the third week is not an issue as long as you take it when you remember. Then yes, take the rest of your pills as usual.  You will be protected.
