safe to say

I'm on estrostep fe. The packet insert says that if you miss a pill, just take is asap and you do not need a backup method. Would you guys say it was safe to say then, that if you took a pill a couple hours late, you don't need a backup method?

sorry for the paranoia!
thanks for any input.

Re: safe to say

A late pill does not require back-up contraception.

Re: safe to say

true, you shouldn't need a back up method for a late pill, your period may be thrown off a little (could be a day later than usual)...

Periods are very rarely thrown off simply by taking a pill a few hours late. Missing a pill, yes, but simply being late by an hour or so will have no effect whatsoever.
