I am taking a triphasic birth control pill. Somehow I accidentally took a pill from the wrong week some time in the last few weeks and didn't realize it until now in week 3. At first I thought I just skipped a pill so then I took two pills by accident. Now I am going to start my inactive week a day early. Do I keep taking as normal or start a new pack immediately?
If you have not been taking your pills regularly there is a risk of pregnancy. You may complete this pack of pills as advised but do use an additional back up method of contraception till you complete this pack. Once you have completed this pack start a new pack only after consulting a gynecologist and getting your doubts clarified. Do write to me again.
Best of luck and kind regards!
