On Novelon, missed pill on the day of intercourse, followed it up the next day with ECP. Pregnancy chances?

HI, I have been on Novelon tablet since September 2012. I had my last periods on 24th December. I started my next course of Novelon on 28th December 2012. On 31st December 2012 my fiance and I had unsafe sex during which he came inside it. I missed my pill that night but took it next day morning. To be safe I took an emergency contaceptive pill next day and continued my course of Novelon regularly. What are my chances of getting pregnant?

you have minimal chances of getting pregnancy.


If one pill has been missed (more than 24 hours and up to 48 hours late)

Continuing contraceptive cover and The missed pill should be taken as soon as it is remembered,

The remaining pills should be continued at the usual time .Emergency contraception (EC) is not usually required but may need to be considered if pills have been missed earlier in the packet or in the last week of the previous packet

as you already taken emergency pill you have rare chance to get pregnant
