Missed pills and extra pills

What should I do if I miss a pill (combined pill)?

If you’re on the combined contraceptive pill and you miss a pill, what you need to do depends on: 

  • how many pills you’ve missed (you’ve missed a pill when it’s more than 24 hours since you should have taken it)
  • when you missed your pill (where you are in the pack)
  • the type of combined pill you are taking
