    am taking ortha try-cyclen low and i lost my light blue pill i decided to just continue the pack a day ahead do i need back up protection ?
    im thinking about using a plan b pill but im scared that my period wont be the same and then i wont know when to start a new birth control pack
    do i still start a pack on sunday like i always do or a Monday b/c of the pill i lost?
    fcl responded:
    Start the pack on Sunday as you usually do. I'm supposing that you lost your pill and took the next one so you shouldn't need a backup.
