Patient

Q: I'm on tri cyclen lo and I missed the very last three pills before the sugar pills (went out of town and didn't bring it). When I got back it was already the day that I was supposed to get my period so I decided to just wait and see if my period would come, but it didn't. It's been three days into the sugar pills now, if I follow the pack I would start a new pack this Sunday, but a doctor online answered a similar question and recommended starting a new pack ASAP, what do you think I should do? I am sexually active but according to a calendar I have I'm not ovulating but we use the pull out method just in case
