I'm taking Loestrin 24 (being discontinued... boooo) and take my pill religiously at the same time every day. I've been pretty stressed this week so I must have forgotten it, because come Thursday I had a Wednesday pill waiting for me. I took the Wednesday and the Thursday pill at the same time, so I took my missed pill exactly 24 hours after I forgot it.
The Loestrin 24 documentation says if that I miss one pill, I'm still protected and don't need to use a backup. I was just hoping you all could give me a second opinion--24 hours seems like a long time to have forgotten it! Should I use condoms for the next week? Will I really really be okay if I don't?
Thank you everyone!
(Edited to add that this must be the first time I've forgotten a pill in over a year--so I haven't missed more than this one this cycle!)
