Sol, you took one late pill. You didn't miss one, since you made it up, but you did take one late.

Generally, it's thought that one late pill is really unlikely to compromise your effectiveness, but it's a good idea to play it safe in any cycle where you've taken any late and backup with condoms for that cycle.

But I don't see a high risk of pregnancy from this.

Alright thank you.

My boyfriend and I have agreed to remain abstinent now however. I hope it is a better route for us.

thanks
