Should have started the new pack yesterday but had managed to run out without realising. Made an appointment with my GP for tomorrow (so by the time I get my prescription I will have missed two days). How long do I have to use additional contraception for? Is it 7 days into the new packet?
I'm sorted for condoms 'cos when I went to the FPC after missing a pill to get the morning after pill she gave me "a week's" supply of condoms - fourteen of the things. PMSL
Blimey, I sound hopeless don't I? Having kids sends you scatty.
yes 7 days to be on the safe side. Do you need to see the Dr? My Dr can leave a prescription for me after I speak to them over the phone for a 3 month supply but then I have to go and get my blood pressure checked before they will give me anymore.
Some chemists will let you have a small supply of pills if you take your empty box and go and explain the situation. My sister has had to do this before, and they gave her three or four days supply, just until she saw the GP.
