Hey! So I took a pill at 10pm (usually take it 8am) so was unprotected before my break week. I want to have sex with my boyfriend but I'm only on day 2 of my pill therefore I won't be protected for another week, isn't that right?

Are you still on Microgynon 30? If so you are on a combination pill. With the combination pill you have 24 hours to take your pills before it’s considered missed. So you taking it at 10pm wouldn’t make it miss or you unprotected since you took it 15 hours from your normal time.

You took it 14 hours late, which isn’t missed. It counts as missed when it is more than 24 hours later than your usual time. That means your break was still protected, and you will be protected during sex (assuming you take your next 5 pills correctly too)

@Pandafan1 hey! I am yes, thank you both @llunx_ But the pill app itself is saying I'm unprotected? So I normally would've 100% agreed with you but this app has me confused

@Pilluser01 what is your time tolerance set to?
Jun 2 18:01
@Pandafan1 on time tolerance is 2h and usage window is 12
Jun 2 18:03
@Pilluser01 you should change to 24 hours
Jun 2 18:34
@Pilluser01 both should be 24 hours for combination pills

Change your settings and it will say you’re protected again. Either way this app isn’t very good about telling you your protection status so you shouldn’t rely on it

@yi_eune @PAndafan1 @Llunx_ Thanks girls I've changed it to 24h. So if I was to have sex tomorrow, I know I don't need a condom, but if he wore one then we'll be okay won't we?

Yeah you’ve taken it correctly so you don’t even need a condom. Considering people who aren’t even on bc rely on condoms, you will definitely be okay
