User Profile
Ive been on lutera for almost 3 years now. I finished my period just today on june 1st. I was supposed to start my new pack today, but i forgot to bring it with me on my trip for the day. Will anything happen if i start my pack tomorrow monday? I dont want to take two pills in one day. So is it possible to start my pack tomorrow. I have been having protective sex, and the last time i had sex was the 24 of may. Please help.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Avoid further unprotected sexual contact. You may consider starting your pill pack 1 day late, and use back-up protection if having intercourse during first 2-3 weeks of being on your pill pack use (if you start the pill pack late). Wait and watch for your periods/withdrawal bleeding. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
