Hello Anonymous,

I hope that you have started the next pack of Melianne birth control pills by now, and have not had intercourse during the days you did not take an active hormone containing pill.

Hi Anon,

According to Meliane, you should continue taking it today as usual and continue everyday.  As prescribed by your doctor.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  According to Meliane. 

The contraceptive protection is not reduced if you take one tablet is delayed less than 12 hours. In this case, should take the tablet as soon as you remember it and keep taking

next tablets at the usual time (even if it means taking two tablets in one day). In this case there is no need to take additional contraceptive measures.

If you are late in making more 12 hours, contraceptive protection may be reduced.

I think it would be best to start taking today and continue taking as usual.  It's only been a day you haven't taken your pill.
