Patient :I've been taking Ortho-Novum 7/7/7 for some time now. I'm currently on Week 2. After I took my Week 2 pill for today, I realized I accidentally took a Week 3 pill for yesterday's pill. It's Saturday and I can't get a refill of the medication until at least Monday, possibly later, because my doctor doesn't work weekends and my pharmacy won't refill it without authorization. How should I proceed with the medication? Should we use backup methods for the next week or longer? Thank you.
