Cerelle - Progestogen Only Pill - Mistake with pills watch

    • Thread Starter

    Background: So I'm on the Cerelle pill and I take it every evening at 6pm. I do have an alarm that tells me when to take it but sometimes if I am halfway through doing something I will take it afterwards. I panic quite often that I have forgotten to take it so I check that I have done quite often.

    Problem: So last night (Friday) I was drinking and have managed to accidentaly take Fridays and Saturdays pill on Friday... not knowing this, I had sex (unprotected with a long term boyfriend, we are both free from STDs) this morning. I am worried that since I have taken Saturdays pill early that it won't fully protect me from pregnancy if I wait til 6pm Sunday to take the next pill.

    Should I take Sundays pill today to be safe from this mornings sex or wait until 6pm on Sunday.

    Take Sunday's pill today - you've taken a double dose one day, which will be fine. It's not taking one at (about) the right time which would be a problem, so don't skip taking one any day.
