    So basically I started my new pack of pills Thursday and had unprotected sex on Thursday&Friday night..
    I took my pill on time however yesterday the pill was 4 hours late and after reading in the guide which comes with the pills, it gives instruction to see a doctor if you have missed a pill in your first week.
    Is the pill being late the same as missing a pill and if it is, should i be
    seeing a doctor then?

    P.s this may have been posted elsewhere, sorry...

    Yasmin has a 12 hour window. As long as you took it in 12 hours it doesn't count as a "missed" pill.

    This, but if you are still worried, then go and see you're doctor for advice on extra protection, it can't do any harm.

    I always find taking the pills at the same time a right faff on
