All the active tablets (24 tablets containing 24 Drospirenone 3 mg and ethinylestradiol 0,02 mg) are the same - Skipping these will be okay.

Start your new pack on the corresponding day if your last tab was fri start the new pack with saturdays pill. Thos will probably change the date of your withdrawal bleed.

The world health organisations guifelines state its fine to miss a pilll and it is not nec to stary a new pack- see the website. But to be safe start a new pack
