I Called the Doctor and....

The line was busy. Have no clue why. Anyway, I have a quick question. Usually, I take my pill (Ortho Micronor - mini pill) at the EXACT same time every day. Today, I was on the phone when my alarm went off so I didn't hear it go off. I ended up taking my pill 20 minutes late. Now, every where I read it said that you have to take it at the same time every day since it's not as strong as the combination pill. My question is, will I be okay if I have sex?

I think there is probably a small "grace period". I think you will be okay. If you are worried just use back up bc.

I think they told me when I was on it that it needed to be taken within the same hour every night. So you have about an hour grace period. You should be fine.

There's always a chance. You'll probably be fine but I wouldn't push it.

Yes, it's fine . If you read the pamphlet , it says if you forgot a pill, take it as soon as you remember . Do not double up.... Meaning if you miss the whole DAY, don't take two the next day.

If you miss a whole day, use another form of bc until your next pack, 20 mind late does not keep you from being " amourous"
:-)

I must say.... You are tons more careful that the rest of us who, we forget at seven am, we are totally calm about taking it at nine thirty!
