Take your pills: Every woman has missed a pill at some point including me. If it's low dose you can start to spot. Make sure you take the pill as soon as realize missed it. Make sure to continue rest of pill pack, taking them same time each day. Also use an alternative form of birth control for next month to avoid pregnancy.
