If you miss one of the last 4 tablets in the 4th row of the strip, this does not compromise contraception as these are placebo pills. Discard the missed placebo pill.
If you miss a light pink, active tablet (tablets 1-24 of your blister-pack), you must do the following: If you are less than 24 hours late taking a pill, take the tablet as soon as you remember and then continue taking the tablets again at the usual time. You will still be protected against pregnancy.
If you are more than 24 hours late taking a tablet, the protection against pregnancy may be reduced. The next steps depends on when you last took your pill and where you are in your pill packet. Please read the patient information leaflet for further information.
