Missed a pill the day after taking one?

On Tuesday I had sex (we started out without a condom but he put one on halfway through it). I took my pill after we had sex at the normal time. However, Wednesday night I forgot to take my pill and remembered to take it less than 24 hours after and did. However, it is my first week of a new pack. Is this okay?

Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

As long as you made up your missed pill the next day and took that days pill on time you will be protected even on the first week.
