I'm taking up Diane 35 and I missed 1 pill in week 1 (5th day) but took it right away at same time as the next pill. My problem is that I had sex the night I missed the pill. What are the possibilities of getting pregnant?

Hi Susan, I am using the pill for the couple of months but then I forget to take at the first pill on April 1(Fri), I take on April 2 night the first pill which I missed and after a couple of hours I take the 2nd pill on same day. But then after 2 weeks I think I missed to take the pill, I remember to take the pill on the next day morning and I take the pill on the night also as schedule. I take all the 21 pill but now I am on the 5th day after I completed the 21 pill but still my menstruation don't come. I am worried. I am still safe? Thank You

Hi Anon!

It's really important to take you pills every day. But since you made both up properly, your risk should not be raised - you should still get your bleeding in the next day or so. If not ,take a pregnancy test to rule that out.

Hi Anon!

The pill is meant to be taken every day so eventually there may be a risk. You need to set an alarm on your phone for the same time every day or choose a different method of birth control.

Hi, i have been taking Diane 35 for a year now. However last December, i missed one pill on the 1st week and completely forgot to take it. I took the next pill as per usual and only remembered the missed pill when I noticed that there was an "extra" pill left. I had sex a few days after missing the pill. Is there high risk of getting pregnant?

Hi Anon!

Thank for your post!

Anytime you miss a pill and don't make it up, there is a risk. But if you have taken all other pills, your risk is very low. If you don't get your period when expected then take a test but again, you don't have too much to worry about.
Best,
Susan

Thank you, Susan! I have begun to bleed which means I am not pregnant.

Hi susan, I missed 1 pill on the 1st day of the week? My 7 days are done but I forgot to take diane 35 on the 8th day. It's my 2nd week now, and I just had sex, but I did not missed any pill at all, just on my 1st day of my 1st week. I am just worried, do I have the risk or being pregnant?

Hi Anon
You should have made up that missed pill. You do have some increased risk but likely still quite low.
Best,
Susan
