I'm starting a new pack of birth control late one day like a dope. Will i still be fully protected if i start a day late? The instructions in the packet state that if i miss a pill and take it with the next pill i'll still be fully protected, does this rule still apply when starting a new packet? (I wasn't sure if it counted due to the placebo week). Or should i simply start a new packet and wait out a few weeks before i start to be fully protected? I'd just like some advice, i've never had this happen after my few years on the pill :( I can't believe i forgot to take my pill!
Instructions within the pill packet:
* If you are late with a pill, take it as soon as you remember. Take your next pill at the normal time. You are still fully protected * If you miss a pill, take it with the next pill. You are still fully protected. * If you miss 2 or more pills, just take 1 pill and use extra protection (like condoms) for the next 7 (SEVEN) days.
