Patient : I've been on Yasmin for just over 2 months. When I began my third packet of pills I forgot to take it at the usual time I had been taking it (midnight) and instead took it at 8am. I have been taking it at that time ever since. Am I still protected? I should probably mention that on the second day back on pills I didn't take it till 12pm but am back at 8am for five days now and I didn't take 2 pills on the first day back on the packet as I wasn't over 12 hours late.
