Help Doc! I missed my Pill today, What should I do?i

OK, now this is what you do:

Remember the rule of 7s:

1. Always take the forgotten pill once you realize that you forgotten to do it. Do this even if it means you have to take 2 pills at a go.

2. Then take the next pill at the usual time.

3. If you missed your pill by more than 12 hours, then you should assume you may be able to get pregnant and use another form of contraception for the next 7 days.

4. If the 7 days run beyond the last hormone pill in the pack, then you should just continue with the next pack immediately without a break. Ie you will miss the menstrual period that month.
