pill worry

Hiya , im wondering how much damage it can do to you if you miss 4 tablets not all at once but over the three week cycle of tablets ?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would DEFINITELY advise you to use a back up method such as condoms for this cycle.  The most harm is done when the pills are missed early in the pack--later in the pack they are not so crucial.
BUT a backup method would be wise!
Good luck!
