Tri-Previfem

I missed two white pills (first and second day). I know that when this happens you are supposed to take two pills that third day and then two pills on the fourth then continue normally. When I finally picked up my pack, I took the two pills but then out of habit took a third a few hours later not remembering that I was supposed to wait. Now how do I proceed?

Actually, if you miss the first couple of pills, you need to use a back up method for at least 7 days. It's crucial that you start the pill on time, or effectiveness can be decreased.

Anyway, take the 1 extra pill tomorrow. Don't take all 4 in one day. Then resume your normal cycle and be more careful.
