Pill 11 hours late

Hey, I usually take my pill at 9pm but I was ill and fell asleep and woke up the next morning and realised I'd missed it... But I took it at 8am the next day as soon as I remembered. This makes me 11 hours late. Never been late before. I had unprotected sex that evening as the leaflet that comes with Yasmin says up to 12 hours late is OK... but I feel 11 hours is kinda borderline. Do you think I'll be alright?

Re: Pill 11 hours late

Yes I am sure you will be fine. In fact family planning clinics here in the UK are now saying that even if you miss one combined pill (or even two in higher dosed oestrogen pills) you will be fine. So I really do not think you need to worry

Hope this helps

Re: Pill 11 hours late

I suggest to use an extra form of birth control for the next 7 days to be sure, but usually if you're within 12 hours of *missing* the pill you are still safe providing that you have been taking your pills consistently the same time/

General rule with birth control pills

If you miss one pill: Take it as soon as you remember or take two pills at the time of your next regularly scheduled dose.

If you miss two tablets in a row, take the two missed tablets as soon as you remember or when you are supposed to take the next one (three total). In this situation is definitely recommended that you use an extra form of birth control for the next 7 days.

If you miss three tablets in a row, throw away the package and start a new package on the 7th day after the last day you took a pill. Use another method of birth control until you have taken a pill for 7 days in a row. (or when it becomes effective i.t.o what your pack says.)
