Hi, Anon, and welcome to EmpowHer!

Missing a pill does increase your risk of pregnancy. When you missed it, did you double up and take two pills the next day? If so, you should be protected. If not, you need to use another form of birth control in addition -- condoms, for instance -- for at least seven days to protect yourself.

Here's a page from Drugs.com that explains what to do when you miss pills (scroll down until you see "What Happens If I Miss A Dose?")
