Brief Answer:
No need to use back up method.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

If you have taken birth control pill regularly WITHOUT missing single one, then 1 hr late for taking pill just for one day has nothing to deal with pregnancy risk.

You will be completely safe and involve in unprotected sex fearlessly. You don't need any kind of back up method as protection.

Hope, I have answered your query. Wish your good health and take care yourself.

For future query, you can directly approach me through
