hi so I have a 28 day contraceptive pill pack and they're all white and pink. I have 21 pink pills and 7 white placebo pills. Yesterday (Sunday) I accidentally took the placebo pill instead of taking the White pill on Sunday. The design of the pack is that they're all pink pills but in the top corner is an L shape where the packet has green packaging which is usually when you start them on your period or 7 pills from Saturday to the next Friday but are those pills any different to the other pink pills that have the pink packaging covering them? Today's Monday and I took both the pink packaging Sunday's and Monday's pill. How can I fix this problem and would it have caused any problems to protecting me from getting pregnant. I didn't have unprotected sex at all on Sunday but I did on Saturday and Friday. And on Friday I took the pill at 9pm because I had been busy. I usually take it at 2:40pm so would that have brought higher risk of pregnancy?
Took placebo pill on the wrong day!! Help?

Didn't mean to write placebo pill in the question but I'm not sure what the "green packaging week" is suppose to be called
What pill are you on? Every one of them is different and I can't tell help you without knowing what you're on.
Hi it's called micronelle
I'm not familiar with this one since its not used in the USA, so the packaging isn't something I an find a pic of. The pills are like any other. You take all the pink pills then the white ones. The pink pills are all the same. You should start with the pink pill that is furthest from the white ones. What color pills did you take today? Never mind the packaging/
