Hi, had sex with fiance 2 hours before i was due to take my pill and then i forgot to take it. I take micronor and it only gives you 3 hours to take it and i remembered 10 hours later! Could I get pregnant or would the pill from the night before still be in my system?

Hi OP do you know where abouts you were in your cycle when you had forgotten to take your mini pill on time?
If in doubt it is worth you popping to gp and either take the morn after pill if you are still within its time frame or having a urine test done. These diagrams may help you to know if you forgot your pill during your fertile phase or not.

Hope all is ok

Get a MAP just to be on the safe side if you don't want to be pregnant. You can buy it at the chemist and the sooner you take it the more effective it is.

NHS missed pill information

Micronor pack information leaflet

These both seem to say you are at risk if yo have otherwise unprotected intercourse from missing the pill until 2 days after you've started taking it again. It does give specific advice about intercourse before you miss a pill, which suggests to me that it's likey to be OK.

But if a PG now would be disastrous, then I think you should seek an urgent appointment with your GP, practice nurse, or an organisation like the FPA to discuss if you need emergency contraception (I don't think this is one a pharmacist would necessarily be able to advise on).

A pharmacist should be able to advise. In theory their knowledge should be better than a GP or a nurse on this sort of thing.
