Im on the 3rd week of my second back of birth contol pills (monophasics). I went to pop off the pill from the pack and i dropped it and couldnt find it! I have dropped the pill trying to extract it from the package before, but i have never lost it. So instead of skipping it, i took the very last hormone pill on the package (3rd Saturday pill) instead, so i wont mess up the upcoming days.
Now what should i do on Saturday?... Should i skip Saturday and take that 4th week off like i would regularly do? Will i have to use protection if i have sex on my placebo week? How would i make up for the pill that i lost? Will 8 placebo days instead of 7 really make a difference?
I read my package insert, and it doesnt say what do if i lose a pill.
