Hello Anon,

Thank you for visiting the EmpowHER community and for sharing your question!

You need to call your doctor.

If you miss more than 2 birth control pills, call your health care provider for instructions. Those instructions may be to take one pill daily until Sunday and then start a new pack or to discard the rest of the pill pack and start over with a new pack that same day-It all depends what type of pill you are on.

I couldn't call my doctor because they're not available on Sundays so I just called the pharmacy. They were able to help me, thank you for your response.
