Aww geeze...it's only the third day of taking it and I already messed up, I was in a rush today and accidently took my pill for the fourth day, instead of my pill for the third day. What should I do?

As long as the pill was the same color as the one for today, you're fine. I think with that brand they are usually white for the first week, blue the second, lighter blue the third and then green for the fourth. You want to make sure that you're on the right week (as the levels of hormones are different from week to week with that type of pill). As stated, take today's pill tomorrow and then continue on.
That's why alot of pills will come with a dispenser that can keep that from happening. I'm on Ortho Novum, and it's in a little Dial-Pak that helps keep track of what day I'm on. Works pretty well, if you ask me.
