... because it fell on the floor and I could not find it no matter where I looked. So I took the pill for Wednesday and have been taking a day ahead from now on. So if I don't take a pill for 8 days instead of 7, Will I have to wait another 2 weeks before having sex?
It's not a weird question and it has been asked on this site before!
The best thing to do is to "borrow" a pill from a new pack to replace the lost pill. This packet can then be kept for when emergencies like this happen again.
It is important not to miss your last pill in your packet because as you have correctly said you increase your tablet free interval from 7 days to 8 days and this increases the chance of failure. You would then have to wait until you had taken 7 active tablets before you were safe. Hope this helps.
