Oralcon Contraceptive - Missed Pill

Updated
Megs Says:

Hi There, I have been on Oralcon now for almost a year now. A couple days ago I was taking the red pills and I noticed I missed the last one. I took it 24 hours later with the first white one of the new pack. My question is will I be affected by missing one of the red pills? Will this decrease its effectiveness against preventing pregnancy?

Hi, Megs! How are you?

The red pills at the end of the pack are just placebo tablets that contain no active hormones, they are just meant to allow you to have a withdrawal bleed that week, so there is no harm in missing them. The sole reason they are included is to keep women in the habit of taking a pill each day, so they don't forget when it's time to start the new pack.

So no, missing one or more of those ones doesn't matter, you don't even have to take it later when you realize it. The only time you would be at risk of pregnancy is if you miss one or more of the active pills.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

I have been on oralcon for almost 2months now. One of the pills was red instead of white and only half the pill was there. I took it anyway because I didn't want to skip one. Am I still protected? My boyfriend never discharges in me and uses the loo before we have intercourse. Is that still ok too? Help!
