I started trinessa on the first Sunday of my period by taking the first white pill. The next day(Monday), I somehow managed to go counterclockwise instead of clockwise, and I took the last blue "active" pill for a Saturday, instead of a white pill. What should I do??
Get back to the active ones and take the one due for today and go on from there. Then at the end before the inactive ones take that other pill. With trinessa you have to be really careful because there is a variance of amts of meds in the active pills. I would be sure to use a condom for the first 7 days that you are taking the correct pill.
Go back to taking the white ones, be sure to either abstain for the next seven days or use condoms as back up protection for the next seven days. When you get to the blue one you took on accident, treat it like a missed pill and use condoms for back up until you have taken seven consecutive white pills on your next pack. With TriNessa it is critical to take the pills in exact order because each week a has a slightly different dose to more closely mimic nature. Some Pills have 21 days of the same active pills and they can be interchangeable. TriNessa is NOT one of those kinds. Each week is a different color and this indicates a different dose each week, so they are NOT interchangeable. Be sure, each time you take a Pill, that you look carefully at the pack and are taking the right Pill you are supposed to take, otherwise you may not be fully protected against pregnancy. Be sure to study the leaflet that came with your pill pack on How to Take the Pill
