Missed On Blue Pill In Week Four, Didn't Notice Until It Was Time To Take The White Ones


Hi, I was confused about what day of the week is was and skipped one of the blue pills in week four. I didn't notice I skipped a pill until it was my usual pill-taking time on Thursday and realized I was taking Wednesday's pill, which was the first of the two active white ones before the inert brown ones. Do I need to take two pills one day to make it up, or should I just continue like usual and ignore it? I wound up taking all of the 24 blue pills, just over the course of 25 days...Thanks!

Hello, Lolabear! How are you?

That long after, doubling up isn't going to do anything. That only works if you notice immediately, within 24 hours, or so.

Missing one creates a small risk of getting pregnant, if you were engaging in intercourse at that time, so you do need to be aware of that.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Im on my second package of sprintec and on the fourth day of the first week week i took it about 10 to 14 hours later. I usually take it at 9:30 at night. The fifth pill of the package i took 4 to 6 hours later. The sixth pill i took on time and that night i had intercourse and the next morning. Could i have a chance of pregnancy?
