I've been taking alesse for around 9 months, and until recently I always took my pill on time. This last month, I messed up badly twice (two seperate occasions) and had to take 2 pills at the same time to catch up. I've been avoiding sex since then because of the pregnancy risk. Now I have gotten my period and still have 5 of the levonorgestrel pills left. I am not sure how to get back on track now that Ive gotten so off schedule, should I keep taking the remaining levonorgestrel pills, or should I take the sugar pills and start a new pack? The directions on the packaging don't mention what to do in a situation like this so I am a bit worried.

Call the doctor; she will be able to help you get back on track. They deal with this kind of thing all the time.
