Is there a chance of getting pregnant if I missed a Cerazette pill and took it the next day ?

Hi, I am on Cerazette and I have been on it for over a year but I had sex and took the pill that night (as per usual) but then forgot the one the next night and realised 12 hours later and took it. Am I in danger of getting pregnant?

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
Cerazette must be taken continuously, at the same time every day, for it to be effective to prevent pregnancy. If you are more than twelve hours late taking your pill, you will not be protected against pregnancy. If at all this happens, you should use an extra barrier method of contraception, for example: condoms, for the next two days, while continuing with your normal pill taking.
Good Luck.
