Welcome to HCM,

Oral contraceptives gives best results if taken regularly and at same time every day.

These pills prevent ovulation. When you miss a dose, your protection decreases.

Now you should avoid unprotected sex during remaining part of cycle.

If your period doesn't start within a week of due date, do pregnancy test and take action according to report.
