  • Lost some of my BC pills

    I'm taking Alesse 28 day pack and I'm currently on my period and taking the white pills. However, I was going out to the store and put a couple of my pills in my coat pocket because I wasn't sure how long I would be. BTW - I cut the pill package up in threes so I could store it where I want to in my room. Once I got home a couple of hours later and it was time to take my pill, I checked the pocket and there was nothing there. I have a feeling that when I took my keys out of the same pocket that it had fallen out in the parking lot. That's my best guess. Basically now I am missing three white pills from my pack (the last three). On Sunday I am supposed to start my new pack with the pink pills. Should I start the next pack tonight or just wait until Sunday and start then? Thanks.

  • If I'm reading this right, you are currently on the last week of the 28-day pack and supposed to start a new pack on Sunday with week one. Had you not lost the pills from your pocket, you wouldn't be missing skipping any of the pills that come in your pack. Am I right?

    The last week of most BC pills consists of filler sugar pills. These pills have NO hormones in them - they exist only to remind you to keep taking your pills each day. IF Alesse functions the same way (I assume it does, hence the change in pill color,) you should just start your new pill pack on Sunday. Find the booklet of info that came with your pills or call up your pharmacy to double-check.
