Patient :I have been on birth control for 2 years now, and I am on the second week of my current pack. I take my pill at 10:30 each night, but on Tuesday night I missed it by 12 hours and took it Wednesday morning, then I missed Wednesday night by 24 hours and tookk that one on Thursday night, and I noticed this morning I was off and took Thursday nights pill this morning. Should I start a new pack or should I just continue with this pack and use a backup contraceptive? If so, how long should I use the back up contraceptive?
