Pill 5 hours late!

Hello i could use a little advice. I just started my new pack of pills on Sunday . I also had sex on Sunday and on Monday I took my pill 5 hours late! I know the first week of pills is very important and I am just concerned if I need the morning after pill or if I should just keep taking my pill at the later time? Nay help would be great thanks!

Re: Pill 5 hours late!

I don't think ECP is necessary in this case. If it had been over a day, maybe, but not 5 hours.

As for changing the time now to match, I would stick with the earlier time. Or change to a time that you will be more likely not to miss.
