Patient :Hi, I am taking the birth control Minsatrin 24 Fe. I went away for 3 days and forgot to take it with me, this was during the second to last week. I looked at the instructions and they were kind of unclear, but from what I understand it said to take 2 pills each day after that to make up the missed pills. Is this correct? I took two pills the first day I got back and the second and continued taking the rest of the white pills but now I am to the end of the white pills. I have also read that if you miss them you're suppose to just keep going onto the next pack and miss your period. I have also had a lot of spotting the past few days as well. What should I do next? And how long will it be until it is effective again? Thank you.
