If I missed two in a row, I’d start spotting and my period would come.

I’d ask the pharmacist when you pick up the new pack. Just to be sure.

@leafgum:  yep, you can find the info for missing up to i belive 3 pills in the package insert.  but wear condoms or use other birth control for a week after since your protection was compromised!

I agree with PP, I would use back up protection for at least a week just to be sure.

@leafgum:  Every pill is different. When you get them on Monday read the pamphlet and it will tell you what to do. With mine if i miss more than 1 day then i discard them and just take the current day and not go unprotected for the next 7 days until it is back in my system properly.

For mine, if I miss 2 days I need to discard that packet, start a new one, and use back-up for a week. Read the pamphlet that comes with your pills (not clear if that where you got the instructions you posted above?)
