Hi there. I've been on yaz now for four years. I have used the pill perfectly for several months now at around the same time. Last night I got stuck without my pills with me. I usually take my pills around midnight-2am before I go to bed. I arrived home at 11:45am today and took my pill asap. Am I still safe? I don't know if it matters but this is my second pink pill and my period just ended.

One late pill generally isn't a big deal. You can always check the information insert that comes with your pills for more information specific to your brand, but being 12 hours or so late with a single pill shouldn't be a problem.
