but the first day of my reminder pills we had protected sex but the condom broke even if missing those pills but still taking them can i get pregnant?
BCP can make your periods much lighter than you normally have had. Missing a pill by a few minutes or hours is no big deal, as long as you have taken a pill everyday. It is best to take them around the same time but a few hours one way or the other wont make much difference. Relax, you should be just fine.
