The Netdoctor says it's fine if you miss one pill and doesn't specify whether it's fewer or more than 12 hours. Info on the blister says if it's more than 12 hours, then I need extra protection for 7 days.

Netdoctor is more up to date, I'd think. Also I just took the yesterday's missed pill, when should I take today's. together or wait a few hours?

You need to follow the pack instructions.

If you are unsure, ring our GP practice and ask to speak to a FP nurse.

If in any doubt at all, use extra contraception for the specified time, unless pregnancy would be OK.

So netdoctor and nhs are in agreement. Outdated info on the blister itself. Not tgat I'll be having any sex any time soon it seems.
