mysticdoc :

Hello,

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

You should continue the rest of the pills as they are.

mysticdoc :

However, you are not protected fully from pregnancy.

mysticdoc :

Hence, you should use condoms for a week.

Customer:

do I take the three I missed?

mysticdoc :

After a week of daily intake of pills, the protection restores.

mysticdoc :

no you should not.

mysticdoc :

this is not going to help but can cause nausea, vomiting.

Customer:
