Hiya i missed a contraceptive pill yesterday and had sex last night with my boyfriend. I then took the missing pill this morning and will take todays pill later in the day when i usually take them. Are my chances of pregnancy high?

No, when you miss one pill and take it as soon as you remember, there is no increased risk for pregnancy. Your pill is still at its 99% effectiveness rate.
