Hello

If you miss one pill, you take two pills and then continue.

This should not interrupt your coverage.

i missed one pill and five hours late for the last active pill, and I took them together, I can still take the suger pill. I don't need to skip the suger pills and start the new package immediately??
Expert:  DrThomasMD replied 5 months ago.

No

You can continue normally at this point.

i don't need to take morning-over pill even if I had sex before the time I should took the missed pill? And I'll definitely be not pregnant if I get my period later?
Expert:  DrThomasMD replied 5 months ago.

You can take the morning after pill if within 72 hours.

If you get your period later, you are not pregnant.

If you have concerns, see your doctor and test.
