Hi I have been taking loryna for a year Last

Patient

Q: Hi. I have been taking loryna for a year. Last month (previous pill pack), I missed one on the first or second week of the pack. So I doubled up the next day at my usual time. That was about a month ago. My period came on time. Then I started my new pack last Sunday (my period had ended and I picked up my new pack). Is this new pack more effective and safe against pregnancy even if I messed up the last pill pack a month ago? I am on my 6th active pill of the new pack and have not missed a dose and take it on time every night.
