I started a new pack of Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo on Sunday and took Sunday's pill. I forgot to take Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday pills. I remembered yesterday (Thursday), and took 2 pills. Do I take 3 pills today (Friday) to get caught back up? Help :(

Hello ad8353,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Yes, you will have to take three pills today, Friday to make up for the missed doses and get back on track.
