    So I've lost one of my pills and I don't know what to do should I take he last one in my pack to replace the one I've lost and then finish the pack as normal but if I do that it means I'll have to start my break a day early and finish after 7 days which will change the star of my cycle,,, will that be ok to do,, because for this month I wouldve only took 20 pills and I've only just started it

    Normally what is suggested is taking a pill from a new pack to replace it and using that pack for situations like this. Does mean you would need to get a new prescription early.

    If you're not worried about getting pregnant, then you can just take the break after 20 pills rather than 21. The effectiveness shouldn't be noticeable lower but it's better to be safe than sorry.
