Loestrin 20 missed pills!!

Hey so I'm currently 13 pills (no placebos) down on my Loestrin 20 packet but have just realised I have forgotten to take a pill for the last 3 days (including today). Would it be sensible to just throw this pack out and start my 7 no-pill days early?

Should I expect a period in the next few days due to the missed pills?

I also plan on restarting the pills in 7 days on a new 21 day packet when hopefully I would have an early period, when would it be safe to continue having sex?

Hope this all makes sense!!

Thanks!

You probably will have a period in a day or two. I would just start the new pack at the number of days after the last pill (7 I assume) as normal. Otherwise, you won't be protected.

According to the directions on the birth control packet, you should probably throw out the pack and start a new one. But you can consult your OBGYN to be sure!

Ask your pharmacist. They are a great source for this type of information!
