Missed Pill
I'm haven't taken my pill since Friday - Ii went away and forgot it at home. I will be going home today. It seems as though my period has started now. Do I just take the pills i have missed and carry on as usual? Will the bleeding stop?

Forget the pills you have missed and start with today's pill, or start with a new pack in the red section. You will have another period when you get to the red section. You will also be unprotected for the next two weeks.
