okay so i usually take my pill at 8:15 at night. well on wednesday night i forgot to take it. i remembered the second i woke up at around 5:45. so i took it. i had unprotected sex that morning at around 7:30. but he didnt cum inside of me. then that night i took my next pill at the regular time.

Taking a pill late does lower the effectiveness, but considering that you made it up not even 12 hours later and the fact that your partner did not ejaculate, your pregnancy risk is still low.
