The green pills are inert. They do not contain hormones. They contain iron and minerals. The white, light blue and blue pills contain hormones. These are taken in the first three weeks. The green pills are taken in the fourth week. You are protected while taking green pills too, because of the effect of hormone pills you have taken in the first three weeks.
You can afford to miss these green pills. You are still protected.
But it is important that you start the next pack as per schedule i.e, on the 29th day.
I hope i have answered your concerns.
