Can you count how many are missing and figure it out?

I'd probably take ONE now to be sure I got some if I couldn't figure it out, but, actually, missing a dose won't matter in the long run.

One tip, though: Make a list of the days and times and the pills you're supposed to take and check off every dose religiously.

Best of luck to you!

By any chance, do you use an iPhone? With so many meds to keep track of AND wanting to take them at the same time every day I used an app just for this (it was a free download). It started way back when taking BCPs, I hated them but felt much better if they were taken the same time every evening.

I have missed a dose before and they said definitely don't try to take one early so if you're not sure I
Would just skip it. The RE told me that missing one dose is ok, you still have the hormones in your system and it takes a little while for your levels to go down. I know it's hard not to worry but even though I missed my dose everything turned out fine so I think you'll be ok.
