... 10:45pm... help?
I forgot by accident, and I want to know what to do about the next day when taking it or if the pill stops working.
I'm not sexually active either, but will my periods start again because I took the Micronor pill almost 3 hours late.
I've nearly finished week 4 of my first sachet, can anyone help me?
I started taking a Micronor pill at 8pm each night but today I forgot and took it at?

Sorry for answering late. Hope my answer may help anyone further:
CAREFUL with Micronor!
So you had a delay of 2h45 in taking your Micronor pil: you should carry on taking the daily pil as usual until the end of your sachet: you should get your periods. Then start a new sachet: you should then be protected again. Until you start this new sachet (and it's not long to wait as you almost finished your sachet), I would strongly advise you use extracontraception (condom) up to the end of your cycle - and certainly not 7 days as said on the leaflet (nor 2 days as I think it has been revised now - as a recommendation after a delay of more than 3 hours): it is not reliable AT ALL!
In case my experience may prevent such stories happen to someone else, believe my poor experience: I had a delay of 2H45 in taking my Micronor like you, and had an "unprotected" intercourse the day after. I followed the leaflet instructions AS WELL AS many doctors advices that were: "you should be fine" so no morning-after-pil and only 2 days extra-contraception: as a result I had to face an unexpected pregnancy...
From now with my experience and after collecting different advice on micro-pil such as Micronor with a "3 hours delay", You should consider you are not protected anymore of an unwanted pregnancy from 1 hour delay only. Be aware you should not be sick either (vomit or diarrhea in the next 3-4 hours). Also avoid to take at night time (before going to bed: it shorten the delay): be fully aware it is a MICRO-pil, so it is less powerful on a time frame: it has to be strickly taken every 24 hours: and it is not easy to respect...
Then perhaps you'd rather swap for another pil or meaning of contraception (cerazette (12 hours), IUD or hormonal IUD mirena, implant) (some estroprogestative pils may also be fine for you). Hope this helps. Good luck!
