Hi I am looking for some advice or information about the contraceptive pill Microgynon 30 in regards to taking this pill late I took it late twice on the first day it was about 13 hours late and then the next it was about 17 hours late, when I see my boyfriend in 3 days do we have to use extra protection for 4 more days?

Thank you for posting your question here, I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

You can make up for a late pill by taking two pills the next day, that is what they say. But I believe that you should use extra protection at least till you have taken the pill two days in a row at the right time, not late. After all better to play it safe.

I hope this answered your question.
