On combined contraceptive pill Yasmin, missed pill. What are the risks?

Hi, I m on the combined contraceptive pill Yasmin, and normally take it at 9pm. On Friday I forgot to take it and fell asleep, but woke up at 8am and took it straight away. Last night, I did the same, but this time woke up this morning at 7am and took it. I know Yasmin has a 12 hour window, but this seems to be cutting it a bit close. Have a missed 2 pills? Am I any less protected?

Dear member,
Thanks for writing to healthcare magic.
The contraception protection is present only when you have taken 7 continuous days of pill. As you have missed 2 continuous pill even though you have taken them in a 12 hour Window I would recommend that you abstain or use barrier (condom) for next 48 hours.
