Am new to this so not sure which topic to put it in, apologies if it's the wrong one!
I'm on the prostregen only pill therefore have a 12 hour window in which to take it, I take it at 11 ish every night.......Apart from last night (as I've only just realised) and of course DH and I had sex about 7.30 this morning.
Am I covered as it was within the 12 hour window-so I sort of missed the pill after the event? If that makes any sense at all!
Cerazette is the only POP with a 12hr window. Older POPs only have a 3hr window. I assume you're taking cerazette.
You may have lost the contraceptive efficacy if you didn't remember your missed pill by 11am. I would advise the MAP. Remeber its most effective taken as soon afer the event as possible- some A&Es, late pharmacies and out of hours GPs can prescribe and dispense prior to waiting for tomorrow.
You will be pleased to know that you only have to use 'additional precautions' for 48hrs after this type of missed pill, not 7 days.
