    Been on cilest for nearly 3 years. I've had my 7 day break. Meaning I start my next pill on the 8th day. So the Friday. However I totally forgot to take it Friday evening. I have taken yesterday's on this morning and will take today's one army normal time. Am I still protected? Or need to use other protection.

    See instructions - "Missing one pill anywhere in your strip or starting a new strip one day late is not a problem. Missing more than one or starting a strip more than one day late may affect your contraceptive cover."

    You weren't more than one day late (and did the right thing in terms of taking it the next day, even though that means you will take two) so you should be fine.
