I have missed the last two days in week two of my pack, so I doubled up on them for Sunday and Monday of the next week. The next day i started to get my period, though I thought that I may have just have been spotting because of the missed pills. Now I see that I wasn't and I am on Wednesday of week three and don't know what to do with the rest of the pills. Do I throw it out and start a new pack on Sunday when my period is over or do I continue and get a new pack at the time I would normally?
Continue to take the pills as normal - try not to forget any more tablets this cycle.
You will be experiencing breakthrough bleeding because of the hormone imbalance. The bleeding is normal and nothing to worry about.
The tablets you have forgotten are fairly "safe" tablets to forget and you probably still have contraceptive cover however to be on the safe side you should use a back up method of contraception for the next seven days.
If you are still unsure of what to do talk with your doctor, nurse or pharmacist.
