Start taking the pill as soon as you remember and try not to miss anymore pills. Whenever you miss a pill you need to use a backup method of protection - a condom for 7 days. If you miss more than one pill then you need to use a condom for 2 weeks. This is 100% necessary as without using a backup method of protection for 7-14 days you put yourself at risk of pregnancy because birth control will not be protecting you against pregnancy due to you missing 3 pills. You need to give time for Birth Control pills to work again and to prevent pregnancy. Continue taking your pills each day even when using a condom.
