Missed pill for 14days now

Hi. Please can someone help.
I havent been on the pill(yasmin-28days) for 14days now. I forgot to take it for about 4 days and when I realized it i had already started spotting and then a week later had a full period. Its now 2 weeks later and would like to know if I can still carry on from where I left off and take them as normal. I dont want to wait for the next period as I dont know how long that will be. I am married, but just dont want to fall pregnant at the moment till things improve financially.

Yes , but use extra precautions for two weeks and skip the placebos in this pack.

You''ll have to use condoms until you are safe again. Start taking the pills at the start of your next period and you will then be safe after a month (some say 14 days, but I always use condomds for the first month).
