I missed taking 3 consecutive pills on my first week. After these days I started where I left with my pills, this meaning that I am taking them 3 days later now. Therefore today(saturday) I took wednesday instead. I haven't had sex but I would like to continue taking it properly. What shall I do?
Thank you

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your message.

When missing 3 pills or more, we advise contacting your gynecologist, to report what has happened and follow your doctor's instructions. A backup method of BC is needed until you get back on track with your pills for at least a week or two.
