I went away for 4 weeks on holidays, I thought I packed pills but after finishing my packet I was using(while away) I then had ny period as normal and the night before I was due to start my next packet I had sex with my partner. the following day I went to start them and found I forgot them. 3 weeks later now and I'm home.. we haven't had any uunprotected sex since that night and I'm not sure when i should start my pills again... right away or wait until my next period??
Went on holiday and left my pills at home!!?

Wait for your period to start them. Treat it just like starting from scratch. Start them either day 1 of your period, or the first Sunday after. I would either use back up or abstain for at least seven days, the whole pack is safer, but the manufacturer says you are protected after 7 days of active pills.
