Question Accidentally took two pills, should I continue regularly?

Well, I am on continuous birth control (no period) using Yasmin with no breaks. I accidently took 2 pills yesterday (had to have since it's Friday and it says Saturday!). So what I need to know is should I go ahead and take todays like normal or not? I spotted for 3 months when starting this and don't wish to start spotting again. What would you do?

In almost 4 years of being on birth control I have never done this!!!

Thanks.

Oh and no I don't have a back up pack. Insurance won't cover an extra pack of pills. But if I do take one today it is fine to order my packs a day earlier (they won't know). Thanks.

Take one a day til the end of the pack, and then start a new pack one day earlier then normal. (ie if you normally start each new pack on Sunday, start on Saturday instead). If you do this, no back-up is needed. However, if you don't want to change start days, take one pill a day and start your next pack when you normally would, but use back-up such as condoms until you've taken the pill perfectly for seven consecutive days after starting your new pack, and on for the eigth pill-free day of your period week.

I don't get my period. But I don't mind the start days. A few years ago there was a time when my start was Wednesday! On continuous I don't really care which day is first. I just needed to know if I could still take it cause I don't want to spot again! Thanks though, I will go ahead and take it.

Oh, okay. In that case then yes, just keep on taking it.
