What If I Miss a Dose?

Missing doses of Mircette increases the risk of pregnancy. What you should do depends on how many tablets you have missed and where exactly you are in your cycle (see Mircette Dosage). If you are not sure what to do, refer to the patient information that comes with each pack of Mircette, or consult your healthcare provider.
