... is it a problem?
It depends... there are two pack sizes...
Aviane w/ 21 days of tablets &
Aviane w/ 28 days of tablets
Hopefully you have kept both tablets.
--- If you have Aviane 21 day pack: All of the pills in the package have the exact same dose of hormones... all the tablets should be pink... not to worry... just take one of the two tablets and store the other in a clean dry place and take the other tablet tommorow... just don't lose it! You do not want to skip a dose cuz' then you will have to use back up birth control for the next month in addition to your pills and that can be a hassle.
--- If you have the Aviane 28 day pack: This pack contains 21 pink tablets and 7 white tablets. Were both your tablets the same colour? If both tablets are pink then do as described above (store one pink tablet safely for tommorow so that you do not lose/damage it) and take one pink tablet.
*** if one of the pills you popped out was pink and one was white... take the pink one first because the pink tablet has the birth control hormones in it... safely store the white one for tommorow... but if you should happen to lose the white one... don't worry... the white pills are just pills that contain absolutely no hormones... if you can't find that white one tommorow... just skip it... you will be fine... JUST as long as it was a white pill.
I hope I may have been of some help to you... I am not a doctor or a pharmacist... just happened to have a pack of my own right here and had the patient leaflet insert handy. You could always call a pharmacy and double check... that is always a good idea.
Hope I may have been of some help :)

Aviane - What should I do if I missed a few reminder pills (light green pills)? Will this cause any?
