I've been on the pill for about 8 months now. I'm usually very reliable at taking my pill every day at the same time. At the end of my pack last month, it seems that I have missed 1 active pill, and it was my last one. Last month was a bit rough because I didn't take my pill at the same time every day, but it was only within an hour or so late/early. My fiancé and I refrained from having sex, and I got my period a day early since I started my placebo pills a day earlier because of the pill I had missed. I am now about to start my second week of my new pack, and I have taken seven active pills. My fiancé and I had sex, and we were sure to use a condom. Should I be safe considering I have already taken 7 active pills even though I had missed one active pill last month? I'm not sure how much it matters, but I am on a 24/4, so I have 24 active pills and 4 placebos, I'm not sure if it decreases the chance of pregnancy because there's more active pills.
