Iam taking tri-previfen birth control n Iam on week 4

Patient: Iam taking tri-previfen birth control n Iam on week 4 n I accidentally took the Thursday pill Tuesday n just realized when I came to take my Wednesday pill… Now what do I do? Do I take Tuesday n Wednesday pills or just Wednesday n skip Tuesday’s?

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.In tri-previfen birth control pills pack, the fourth week p ills will be placebo or non hormonal pills.So, usually taking one-day pill on other day will not alter the contraceptive effect.So, now you can take Tuesday pill on Thursday and can continue remaining pills as usual.Take care
