I have recently forgot my pack of Loestrin 24 at my roommate's house, and she had mailed it to me. I missed three days, and forgetting about the instructions, I doubled last night, and tonight, having four pills in two days. Is this too much? I threw my pack away and was planning on starting again in another week. Is this the right thing to do?
4 pills in 2 days is ok, but going without the pill for 3 days cannot be caught up. You have to use a condom for a week like you did when you first started the pill. Doing it the way you did is ok for 2 days, but if you miss 3 the chance of ovulation is there and you have to protect yourself. You might start bleeding because your body went without hormones for 3 days.
