How late did you end up taking your pill? If it was no later than 12 hours after your pill time, you don't need to worry about it compromising the effectiveness.

If it was later than that, as long as that happens no more than once per pill pack, you should still be okay. But having more than one late or missed pill in one pill pack will likely affect your protection, so you'll want to be extra careful to take the rest of them on time.

Because you took all the others on time (and you'll want to make sure to continue to do so) and it was less than 12 hours, as Joey said you're still covered.
