    how late is "missed"

    I'm on the second week of pills and i usually take it at a certain time religiously but today my alarm didn't go off and i missed it by about ...almost 3 hours. should i be worried? use another method of birth control for 7 days?

    Check your pill's package insert, but generally speaking, three hours late on a combined pill (one containing an estrogen and a progestin) is not a cause for concern if it's a one-time thing. Most combined pills are only considered missed if you are twelve hours late. You should be fine. Just don't make it a habit to take your pill late. No back-up birth control is needed in this case.
