Use a backup form of birth control for two weeks.Two days late starting the next package: Take 2 pills per day for 2 days, then continue as usual. Use a backup form of birth control for two weeks.Three or more days late starting the next package:Call the clinic for instructions.If you are not using a backup form of birth control already, START NOW. It is likely you're not fully protected, and you may not be until the end of this cycle.
