I take my pill at 11:00am faithfully everyday. The latest 11:05! Wednesday is my start day. From Wednesday, December 9th it was my inactive pill/period week. The next Wed. (the 16th) started a new pack. But yesterday, Sunday the 20th was a very rough day & I was 7 almost 8 hours late. Like 6:30pm ish. Took it as soon as remembered. I know they say there's a I think four hour time frame but I feel like that was BEYOND the normal gap. Do I need backup protection for the next 7 stays? Probably right? & prior to that I had unprotected sex December 7th but I know I'm protected on the active pills.
