    missed iron pill

    Ok, I on my 5th day of the iron pill part of the pack, and I just misplaced my pill for today. Is it a big deal to miss these pills?

    Thanks.

    i assume you are taking Loestrin being that they have iron pills at the end. No, it won't hurt to miss those. I used to take that kind, and most months I never even took my iron pills. They just give you a little more energy supposedly during your period.

    No, I am taking Apri (generic Desogen). I call these pills at the end the iron pills, but they may be sugar pills, I really don't know. Thanks
