Yes, it's fine. If you're taking a combination pill than a pill isn't considered misssed unless it is more than 12 hours late. Generally though a pill should be taken very close to the time it's usually taken, within three hours after. Four hours isn't pushing it too much, though, especially if it's just once.

And your risk of pregnancy doesn't go up if you have intercourse on the same day you had a late pill. Plus, him not ejaculating inside you is another layer of protection.

Don't worry; a four-hour-late pill on one day won't drastically upset the effectiveness of your pills. [Smile]

Here's some more info on missed and late pills.
