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

Patient

Q: 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

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
In tri-previfen birth control pills pack, the fourth week pills 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
