What do I do if I missed 3 pills in week 3 ..the last 3 before the inactive brown week 4 pills. I've read i should throw away the pack and start a new pack today. However, I can't get a new pack of pills until next week because of my insurance. It will not cover it until a week from now. Do I just wait until I get the new pack and after my period start it on Sunday? What problems will this cause?
This reply is a bit late but yes, you should have started on a new pack. If you didn't have it then, then start it when you start your next cycle (as directed by your doctor - either Day 1 start or Sunday start. You also need to start from the beginning i.e. use extra contraception for at least 7 days when you start the new pack.
In between just use another form of contraception.
