i took my pill per usual at 6:30am today but then my clock rang again 10min later (never does this) and i instictively took another pill. So now I have taken friday's pill and saturday's pill yet today is friday. What do I do? Do I take my sunday pill on saturday and finish the pack? Do I wait until Sunday? Please help out, what do I do when I finish my pack on friday instead of saturday of next week. I need some direction, my pill is also Diane 35 I have no side effects yet but do you know if there are any associated with Diane? I know this was a silly thing to do but mistakes happen, better than forgetting totally. Thanks muchly.

This late in your pack, I'd recomend you just take your final pill tomorrow - it should still be fine to start your next pack when you normally would after your placebo week next week (so you'll just have one extra day before starting your new pack).

It shouldn't give you too much trouble, and it shouldn't be a huge issue in terms of effectiveness next month.

So I take my sunday pill on saturday(tomorrow) and keep finishing the pack until I am done which is - the 16th Saturday, however because of this i'll be done on the Fridaythe 15th instead, right? Then do i just start my next pak per usual on the following Sunday? -- 24th? Thanks this is really confusing any reply is appreciated.

Yes, you take your Sunday pill tomorrow (Saturday), then keep taking one pill each day as you normally would.

Then, you will start your placebo/inactive week one day early (so your last active pill will be on a Friday, instead of the Saturday), BUT, it's fine to start your next pack on the Sunday when you normally would, rather than needing to start it one day early.

You've got it right [Smile]
