Heya guys ...

I was feeling ill, so i went to be early at 6:30pm and I slept right through till nearly 4am (3:38am). Now I normally take my pill at 9pm. As you can see I asm really late taking it. Am I still protected and should I still take it?

lots of love

You should definitely still continue taking your pills as precribed - this means take the pill you missed now, then take your next pill at its normal time.

Since you are late taking this pill, I'd recomend that you use a backup method if you are going to be sexually active through the rest of this cycle, if you do not already use condoms or something in addition to the minipill.

Because you're only taking one pill late, and because of the way the minipill works, I'm not sure how greaty reduced the effectiveness of it will be; regardless, it's always better to be safe than sorry, especially since with the minipill you do still ovulate.
