On yasmin pill. Forgot to take the medication. Need advice on emergency contraceptive pill

Hi, I have been on Yasmin pill for 2 years now, I am on the 7th day of pill, last night around this time I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend, I forgot to take the pill last night and have took 2 tonight which is around 23 hours late, I was wondering if I need to take the emergency contraceptive or if my pill will have still protected me?

Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

If you have missed just one pill in the pack, there is no need to use an emergency contraception.

Your pill will be protective.

You have to be regular with the remaining pills in the pack in order to ensure contraception.

Missing any further pill would reduce contraceptive efficacy and also require emergency contraception.

I hope I have answered you.

Take care.
