If you took the pill but late its absolutely okay. If you missed a day then make sure you take two the next day but dont have sex if you didnt take the pill.

If you took a the wrong sugar pill on the week you were supposed to be taking sugar pills, there's no worry. If you took a sugar pill when you should have taken an active pill, it's as if you took no pill at all.

If you have been using the pill for some time and took that first pill late on the day it was due, chances of pregnancy are very small.

Every pill in a pack of progestin-only pills, or minipills, is exactly the same. Taking Errin, Micronor, or Cerazette in the wrong order has no effect.

I don't think so, as long as you took your pills on schedule you should be fine joymaker rn

If the pill you took was a sugar pill/placebo pill, the result is like missing a pill. If you just took the wrong active pill, there is no risk. Continue taking the pills as scheduled, and next Saturday just take this Saturday's pill. If you're not sure if these were active or placebo pills, contact your health care provider or pharmacist for advice specific to your medication.

If you're just starting the pill, it's best to take the pill on the first day of your period. My GYN told me that you can also start the pill the Sunday following the start of your period... That way, it's easier to keep track of whether or not you took/missed your pill that day.

If you took them every day for a week you would delay your period by one week.

Providing you have taken all your pills correctly you will be protected during your seven day break and if you took your first pill of your new pack on the day after your seven day break you should be protected.

Nothing. The doctors today say this is OK. I wish they had said it when I was on the pill.

If you took your pill earlier, there is no additional risk of pregnancy. If you're on the combination pill you can take your next pill at the usual time or the new early time. If you're on the progestin only pill, take your next pill within three hours of the time you took today's pill.

No. The pills are all the same. They are just labeled to help you keep track

User Avatar

No harm done. Just continue taking one pill per day. Your next pack will start a day earlier than usual, and that will be your new pill start day.

You have the probability of not getting pregnant. Take the pill within 72 hours. Sooner you take it the better.

The bleeding will not have been caused by you taking the pill a day late. If you have been bleeding for a month, I would advise that you urgently sought the help of a medical professional

User Avatar

Start your new pack a day earlier so that you don't go more than seven days without an active pill.

If you took the wednesday pill on tuesday, then just take the tuesday pill on Wednesday. There is no harm and no decrease in effectiveness as long as the wednesday pill wasn't a placebo pill and the tuesday pill an active pill (e.g. in Loestrin 24)

Don't worry about it. I sometimes take two pill one day if I forget it the day before. My doctor says it's absolutely fine to do that just don't make it a habit.
