I'm on the contraceptive pill Yaz which includes 4 inactive pills. I get my period for about 3-4 days normally on the third day of inactive pills. So I got my period but then forgot to buy a new pill pack and ended up missing three pills. What should I do

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Typically you would need to make up any missed pills and use an alternate form of BC for at least 7 days of taking your pills regularly again. It's best to contact your gynecologist or pharmacist for further instructions since 3 pills were missed.
