I just started a new brand of birth control and i usually take my pills around 7 pm. I forgot to take day 4 in the first week. I took the pill the next morning at 8 am. Are my chances of getting pregnant higher since I forgot to take that pill?

Hello tbj07

Thank you for writing.

As long as you took your pill the next day and that took that days pill too, you will be protected.
