What should I do next if I took 3 birth control pills in one day?

I forgot to take my pills on Wednesday and Thursday and I took 3 pills on Friday. I understand that it might have been a mistake doing that. What should I do next? I have 8 pills left for the pack.

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
You are correct. You should not take several in one day, even if you miss some days. Whenever you miss pills simply start where you left off taking one pill a day.
At this point you can continue taking them as usual (one a day.) You will probably feel nauseous, or other symptoms. It will go away in time.
