I'd recommend taking 1 pill everyday until you finish the pack. You're going to finish the pack 1 day early by doing this, so you'll either have to start your new pack one day early, or, start your new pack on the originally scheduled day, but use a back-up method of birth control for 7 days after starting the new pack.

The above post sounds correct but whenever I screw up on my meds I call the pharmacist just to be safe!!
