No use of tablets in this cycle

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
If the pill is missed for 3 days in a row, then the contraception is hampered.
There is no use of taking rest of the tablets in this cycle.
You both can use condoms for contraception in this cycle.
The tablets should be restarted from the first day of next periods.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
