You should be ok. since you just started taking the pill you may want to try to find a way to remind you to take it at the same time every day because it is best if you take it at the same time every day. What I used to do, (this was before cell phones, lol) was I had my pills on my night stand beside my alarm clock and it reminded me to take them every morning when I wokeup. If you are a coffee drinker, you can put them by the coffee maker so that you see them or with your tooth brush. You can also set an alarm in your cell phone for the same time every day to remind you to take them or you can buy a pill alarm, I found mine at the pahrmacy, it's actually a pill box with an alarm but you can use the alarm to remind you to take your pill. Good luck to you!! :))
When you miss a pill, you should use back up for seven days after the missed pill. It is unlikely that you would get pregnant but if you have any further episodes of sex in the next seven days, he should use a condom just to be sure, either that or just not have sex for seven days. You girls are lucky to have cell phones that you can set a reminder alarm. I was like the other poster. I used to set mine somewhere I would be sure to see them to try to take them at roughly the same time every day.
