Question Question About Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo?

I am on Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo and I am just wondering, when they talk about missing a pill, do they mean it being a few hours late or not taking it the whole day? I have been a few hours late a few days in the first week of this pack and I am just wondering if I am okay? I have had sex quite a few times and I usually don't use condoms or make him pull out. We aren't having sex with anyone else so I am not worried about getting anything. Also, I was told that after the fist week of being on it I would be safe and I just started the pill this pack. I waited 2 weeks before having unprotected sex cause I was on antibiotics and I wanted to make sure I would be okay. Thanx!

A couple of hours shouldn't make a difference. Read your package insert-- it will tell you when you need to use a back-up method.
