Missed one pill, safe to have sex with out condom?

I can't believe this happened, but I missed taking a pill! I had it packed with my other bathroom stuff before I left for an overnight trip at my in-laws. When I got there and was getting ready to take it, I realized that forgot it! Ah!

I usually take it at 10pm, I finally just took it(and todays pill) when I got back home at 9pm.

I take Sprinterec and am on the first week(finishing that week on Sunday).

So far, everything I read(including the insert) says that I am safe to have sex with out a condom. Am I correct? Or should I wait 7 days?

I have never missed a pill before(this late at least), so I am not sure what to do in this situation.

Ah! Help!

I'm not familiar with that particular type, but when I looked it up, everything I found said it was safe as well. However, if you are still a bit hesitant even after reading different sources, I would suggest waiting, so you don't end up giving yourself any imaginary symptoms or anything like that. Stress can be a powerful thing.

Why take the risk? maybe it is better that you use condom few days than have sex while you are thinking that you can get pregnant

I'm on the same birth control and you should be fine without a condom since you only missed one day and took it the next day with that day's pill.
