I already searched the boards so as not to clog it up!
(Lots of confused pill questions out there!)

I was late taking my last pill by 16 hours, however i did not realise this until half way through my break!
Technicaly I should have gone without a break and started a new pack, BUT I didn't because I didn't realise!

I'm due to start my new pack today, Will things just go back to normal now? Or have a messed everything up!!!
Complicated I know!

Any help is appricated!

let's clarify a fw points because oyu have confused me.

okay, the last pill with hormones in it was taken 16 hours late, right?

now you are on your placebo pills, right?

then just take your pills as previously scheduled. being 16 hours late for the last medicated pill might put a dent in its overall efficacy, but other than that, there's not much you can do. just carry on, but use a condom in case.
