If you forget to take a progestogen-only pill, what you should do depends on:
If you are less than 3-12 hours late
If you are more than 3-12 hours late
If you are taking a three-hour progestogen-only pill and are more than three hours late taking it, or are taking the 12-hour progestogen-only pill and are more than 12 hours late, you cannot maintain continued contraceptive protection, and will need to use additional contraception for the next two days after missing the pill.
|take the last pill you missed straight away (if you have missed more than one, take only one)|
|take your next pill at the normal time|
Depending on when you remember, it may mean taking two pills on the same day (one at the time of remembering and one at the regular time), or even at the same time.
You will not be protected from pregnancy, so use additional contraception, such as condoms, for the next two days after taking the missed pill.
