Apologies for the shameless post for traffic, but it's a bit of a time sensitive one. I started my period last Saturday and began taking cerazette on Sunday morning. Took it Monday Tues and Wed then forgot to take yesterday (Thursdays dose). DTD with DH earlier this afternoon which reminded me to take todays dose (around 3pm) This is when I noticed I had forgotten yesterday's dose. Cue panic as I'm only 8 months post partum. Google offers varying advice so rang the pharmacist. He was quite certain that I didn't need emergency contraception as I'd technically only missed one pill but he checked with his (female) colleague who stated I should get it as I had missed 'two'. Not really sure what to do. I'm currently 8 months post partum so absolutely do not want to take chances but at the same time I don't want to be taking medication unnecessarily. Just to add this is the first time in 15 years I've ever forgotten to take a pill so please be kind!
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

@murbblurb I think I 'only' missed the 12 hour window once, as if I had of taken yesterday's pill I would have still been in the 12 hour window for todays pill IYSWIM. But yes, I probably should get the MAP just to err on the side of caution. And set a bloody alarm clock too!

They may have been confused as you can miss one combined pill and be ok. There is less leeway with the mini pill
