Hi, welcome to health care magic

Oral contraceptives are 99% effective when taken daily at approximately the same time. Though you missed the dose by about 90 minutes ,it should not have any significant impact on your contraceptive cover.
The oral contraceptive pill will protect you against pregnancy but will not protect against STI.

I hope this information is helpful to you
