What should I do if I miss a pill?


This depends on which pill you’re taking. Read the ‘missed pill’ section of the pill’s pharmaceutical leaflet for further instruction. If you’re concerned contact your local sexual health clinic, contraception clinic or your GP as you may need to take emergency contraception. You must also use a back-up method of contraception while you are at risk of becoming pregnant. If you miss your period and have forgotten to take one of more, you should do a pregnancy test.
