I lost a loestrin 24 pill, do I just skip the day and keep on going? I won't be doing anything to be worried about for another week. I have about 2 weeks left of this pack. I'm just worried to miss one but it dropped into an impossible spot to get it (believe me I tried for a while to get to it).
Sorry this question was not answered earlier for you.
There are several things you could do. Firstly you could put the rest of the packet away as a spare and start a new packet from the same place as you lost your pill. In this way you won't miss any tablets, or get out of kilter, and is the safest - but you will need a new prescription a month earlier.
The second option is to take the next days tablet instead - but then you are going to end up being one tablet short at the end and will need to take a tablet from a new packet to make up ... which can lead to confusion.
The first option is the best - hope this helps... for when it happens again!
