Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Hi these pills contains hormones to maintain your normal cycle and hormone level. If you miss one day then have to take care using other precautions like condom. Once or twice delaying for 1 - 2 hours does not affect you. Last 4 pills are inert and no problem if any variation. But dont vary pink tablets tablets. If you develop any problem then consult your doctor.

Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries. Wish you good health. Take care.
