Hiya, I just have a really quick question.

I've been on the pill Ovranette for the last ten months or son, i usually take my pill between 8 am and 10 am. Last week I was on my week out from the pack so I was supposed to start my new pack yesterday morning. However I was away for the weekend and forgot to pack my pill, I only got home and took it at half one yesterday afternoon, around 5 hours after normal time. I know that it's not considered late if it's under 12 hours but I was just worried about it because of it being the first pill of a new pack, which I no is really important.

Am I still okay or should I use a condom for the next 7 days or for the rest of the cycle or which ?

Thanks again scarleteen.

Given it was only five hours late, I wouldn't sweat it.

But, by all means, if you don't feel comfortable with it, there's certainly no reason NOT to back up with condoms, now or at any time.
