thank you for using health care magic,
well i will suggest you that continue your pill as usual.. henceforth be careful and take on time regularly..
to be on safer side till the end of your this cycle take pills as usual and use additional barrier birth control method like condom.. from next month you can leave using condom and continue pills as usual ..
so this month use two birth control method pills and condom.. from next month only pills regularly..
hope my answer helped you..
