If you miss two pills during the first two weeks of your cycle, take two pills a day for the next two days. Then continue to take it regularly until you have finished your pack. Use a second method of Birth Control for the remainder of the month, for you could still become pregnant if you are sexually active.

If you miss two pills during the third week of your cycle, take one birth control pill daily until you finish the first 21 pills in your pack. Throw out any remaining pills. Once again use a back up plan...condoms ect. If you miss three or more pills at anytime during the first week, take one pill daily until you are finished the first 21 pills. Throw out the remaining, start your new pack when you are supposed to and use a back up method of birth control.

This is for the combination birth control pill- those that contain both estrogen and progestin hormones. The best advice I can give you is to see your doctor about your situation, and also be sure to use a back up if you plan to have sex. Stacey

I would request another form of birth control if you have trouble remembering to take pills; like injections. The best way to remember is putting them right by your sink next to your toothbrush so you see them first thing in the morning and remember to take them.

Use the patch instead.

of course you can!! what kinda question is that? seriously don't you read the disclaimer. if you miss five days of pills you're supposed to wait until your next period and than start a new pack.
