Thanks for the query.
According to your description, you totally missed one pill.
So now the complete protection cannot be expected.
So you have to use some additional contraceptive measure like condoms till you complete this pack.
You can continue the remaining tablets.
After completion of this pack, you can start next pack as usual.
For more details you can ask me directly through the premium forum.
Take care.
