Took my pill 13 hours late - could I get pregnant?

I normally take my pill at 9AM every day, and I’m pretty good at remembering, but yesterday I got caught up in work and forgot and I ended up not taking it until about 10PM last night.
This may seem like a basic question but is there any risk for pregnancy? seeing as I took my pill just outside of the 12 hour window? I’m going to my boyfriend's house tonight and we may end up having sex. We normally use condoms along with the pill and he always pulls out but I’m still always scared about my protections levels being affected.

I checked my pill's instruction leaflet and it said that I should be okay, and that the "reliability of the pill is maintained" but I still get very worried.
Should I be okay in terms of not getting pregnant? Thank you.

Hello cb93

The leaflet is correct, there is no risk.
