An 8 day placebo week should be fine.  If you’re worried, use condoms for the first week of your next pack.

Call your pharmacist. There should be a 24 hour CVS or Walgreens that you can call. They can tell you what to do. Good luck! Oh, I have done this before and I think they told me to just continue to take my BC as normal and to use 2nd form of BC for the next month!

Contact your pharmacist tomorrow morning and get a refill.

Then you don’t have to worry about it messing up your schedule.

I did this once and my period came a day early. It shouldnt be an issue but I would call the pharmacy to be on the safe side

Take it as normal and take a 7 day placebo week. If you take longer than 7 days you will need to wait a week before you pill begins working as normal again.

But yes speak with your pharmasist, you can just call 🙂
