Can I Start Taking the Pill Today?!!!

I am taking ortho tri cyclen. I ended my period this past thursday and I am to start a new pack today. However, I missed the last three grey pills (active ones) in the pack and never took them. Can I start the pill today for a new cycle? Or do I have to wait until the next sunday that I have my period to start over again? Thanks.

Start taking them as if you never missed any. But do use a back up method until you know you aren't pregnant.
