more than 12hrs late taking first pill of next pack

I have been taking the pill (Diane-35) almost perfectly for over 2 years but last night i forgot to take the first pill of my new pack (I usually take it at 9pm) and only remembered to take it at 11.30am the next day because i thought it was Saturday rather than Sunday

I know I have to keep taking the pills at my normal time and must use protection for the next 7 days but I'm wondering if I'm at risk of being pregnant as I had sex in the 7 days prior to my missed pill?

I have read conflicting information as some (internet) sources say I'm at risk if I take the first pill more than 12 hours late and had sex in the 7 days before the missed pill, while others say 24 hours...

What constitutes a missed pill - taking it more than 12 or 24 hours late??

Any information would be great! Thanks in advance

Re: more than 12hrs late taking first pill of next pack

You should always take them on time, missing pills does increase the chance of pregancy although one pill taken 12 hours late should'nt matter. Having sex 7 days before should be no concern now 7 days later either. Sperm only live a couple days
