hi, I am on Zarah and have been for almost 4 years. I started my 3rd week of a pill pack last thursday. Apparently I missed taking my pill on Sunday but did not realize it until today. So I missed the pill Sunday, took Sundays pill yesterday without realizing it was Sundays pill and then went to take my pill today and saw that Mondays pill was still in the pack (because i took sundays yesterday). I thought back and know for sure that I took a pill yesterday (monday) and remember taking it saturday but cannot remember taking it sunday. I have never ever missed a pill in the last 4 years so i am not really sure what i should do or the precautions i should take. Like i said this is the 3rd week of my pack and my last active pill is tomorrow (wednesday). any advice would be greatly appreciated.

First, have you made up for the pill that you missed -- ie. are you now back to the right amount of pills left in the pack? If not, you need to make sure to take the pill that you missed ASAP. Also, you'll probably want to back up with condoms just until you start the new cycle of pills, just to make sure you're protected.
