| | Is taking the pill within a 1 or 2 hour window really safe?
Since ive lost one of my pills earlier this week, i decided to take the last pill on the pack in its place in order not to skip one. This would mean that i would miss the last saturday pill. I usually take my pill at 10pm daily. I hear that its ok to take it 1 to 2 hours late and it wouldnt be considered a missed pill. Last night (Saturday=no pill) around 1am i started to spot/bleed.
Now,.... i know that not taking the pills on the that last week can bring on your period, but this doesnt usually happen until my 2nd or 3rd "placebo" day.
Does this mean that the pill started to wear off 3 hours after a missed pill? If this would happen during the middle of the pack, would i have to use back-up?
I am on a low-dose pill (Losterin 1/20) if it makes any difference.
