Im always very paranoid when it come to my pills. I take ortho tri cyclenlo, and just started a new pack yest. Well today's pill got stuck when I was trying to push it out, and when it came out it "shot" out. I started panicking cuz I thought I lost it then I found it and took it. But of course now im scared that I really didn't take it. (this is why im seeing a therapist). If for some reason I didnt take it, will I be ok? Im not planning on having sex for awhile, and im gonna try and keep from having it at all this cycle.

Has anyone ever missed a pill and not realized it? Im pretty sure I took it though, cuz I looked in the mirror and saw it on my tongue. I feel so psychotic! Embarassed

If you missed just one, which you didn't, you would be fine, especially since you aren't planning on having sex. You are a-ok!! :d

One thing to do is to leave that pill on the counter and continue using what is in the pack. Then use the questionable pill the last day of the triphasic cycle. But to be really sure, it wouldn't harm to use a condom as well, until next menses.
