Thanks for your query.

I have read your query & I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Missing pill for one day does not matter much. It wont make you pregnant.

2) I advice you to relax and not to think about one missed pill as adequate protection is covered and no possibility of you being pregnant.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
