Missing one of the white inactive pills should not compromise contraception. Discard the missed inactive pill and continue the pack as normal. You will still be protected.
If you miss an active pill, take it as soon as you remember (this may mean taking 2 pills in a day) and then continue the pill packet daily. Don't take more than 2 active pills in one day.
If you are less than 12 hours late when taking an active pill, take it as soon as you remember. Then continue taking the tablets again at the usual time. You will still be protected against pregnancy.
If you are more than 12 hours late taking a pill, 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, or send us a message via your Patient Record.
