- If you miss a pill and your strip ends in the next 6 days, take the missed pill and continue your strip as normal till the end, then skip the 7 day break. You should start the next strip the day after your previous strip finishes
- If you have missed more than 2 pills, you may no longer be protected from pregnancy. Continue taking your pills as usual but avoid unprotected sex for the next 7 days. If you do have unprotected sex, you will need to get emergency contraception with 5 days to prevent pregnancy
