Lost Birth Control Pill

Patient: I accidentally dropped and lost a pill from my birth control package, what do I do?I’m taking YAZ on a 24 day cycle, about halfway through the package. This is the only package I have, as I buy them month to month.

 

 

Symptoms: N/A

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.You can continue with next day pill taking today, as dosage of hormones are same in all pills, there may not be any difference.After completion of 23 active pills, you can start a new pack as recommended by your doctor.Take care.
