I normally take my Sprintec birth control pills like clockwork but dropped the ball this week when I was traveling. I forgot to take the Sunday and Monday pills, so I took them at the same time as my Tuesday pill this morning. Tuesday's pill (today) was my last before the week of placebo pills. Has the "effectiveness" been ruined? Can I expect my period to come on Friday like usual? Should I start my next pack next Wednesday like usual? If the effectiveness was ruined, how long do I need to wait after starting the next pack to have sex? Any help is much appreciated.
