At three pills missed, your best bet would be to go ahead and take your seven-day placebo period now and then start a whole new pack.

You'll also want to be sure to back up that first cycle with a secondary method of birth control if you're sexually active, like condoms.

That's fine to do as well. You can also just finish the pack and enter into your normal placebo period.

Just be sure to use a backup from now through the end of your NEXT cycle of pills.
