Can't believe I just did this. I usually take my pill at 9pm, but I fell asleep and I just now took it at 8AM! I read on the instructions that skipping or being late with one pill doesn't really up your risk for pregnancy, but I reaaally want to make sure.

A pill isn't considered significantly late until it's been taken more than 12 hours after the usual time. You were near this cut-off. Even if you miss one pill entirely, you aren't at significant risk of pregnancy. [Smile]

If you feel nervous, though, a backup method is way easier on the mind that worrying!
