Missed Pills

I just realized that I have missed nine pills in a row... I've been on the pill so long I have no idea what I do next, should I throw away the pack and wait for my period to start again or can I start taking the pills that I have missed? {I'm taking Diane 35}

Thanks!

Re: Missed Pills

Hmm 9 days is a pretty long time to go without pills! For missing 3 or 4, you would usually double up and take the missed ones.. but you should probably call your doctor about 9 days. I'm not sure if taking 2 or 3 pills a day would even be worth it.. you may have to let your period come and restart like when you first started your pill. Definitely use backup birth control for a while until you are back on track for a while!

Re: Missed Pills

I would just start a new pack. You will not be protected from pregnancy for at least 7 days, and you may have some breakthrough bleeding.
