    I wouldn’t worry, there is no way you ovulated in the 7 hours you didn’t take the pill.

    You’re fine. You took it late but it was less than 12 hours. Just don’t do it on a regular basis and you’ll be fine.

    According the little packet that comes with my pills, missing one isn’t a big deal as long as you take it as soon as you remember.  Plus, if you are on the typical 28-day pack w/3 weeks of pills and 1 week of placebos, it’s unlikely that you ovulated during the placebo week. You’re fine.

    I think you’re fine.  Just make sure you take the one you’re supposed to take today too.

    I think you’re ok since it was only a few hours.

    you’re ok because it hasnt been that long AND since you just had your period (because your starting a new pack), you arent ovulating yet….

    Missing just one pill isn’t too bad, and only being late by a few hours is really not a big deal, as long as it doesn’t happen regularly.

    I set an alarm on my cell phone to go off every night when I’m supposed to take my pill, and since, I’ve not had a single “oops” moment.
