Hi littlewoman,
Thanks for your question and for being a part of the EmpowHer Community.
I'm confused, did you just start taking the pill and have already forgotten to take 4 of them? If that's the case, maybe the pill isn't the right choice for you. Have you called your doctor to tell them you missed the pills? What did they tell you? When are you supposed to get your period? Have you taken a pregnancy test? When did you miss the pills (at the beginning of the pack, at the end, etc.)?
If you are going to be on the pill, according to the package insert that comes with the pills, you have to remember to take them every day at about the same time. If you have sex again, you also should probably use a backup method like withdrawal method, or a condom if you don't want to get pregnant.
Here is an advocacy sheet I wrote about missing birth control pills. Hope it helps:
Please let us know how you are doing, and if you have more questions.
