Hello doctor,

I am on Novelon for the last four months. Generally, I take my pill while going to bed. I forgot to take the pill on 31st night and took it on 1st morning. Basically, I took my pill late by 10 to 11 hours. And then, I continued taking rest of the pills on time. Is there any possibility of getting pregnant here? Please advice.



Welcome to

I have gone through your history and understand your concern.

As you are taking the medicine regularly and if you took the missed pill within 24 hours, you should continue your pill and you will not get pregnant.

Thank you doctor,

I took the tablet late by 12 hours but did not miss the tablet. Today morning, one hour after I got up, I was not feeling alright, a bit pukish. That is why I am worried if there is any chance of pregnancy.



Welcome back to

There is no chance of pregnancy as you took your missed pill on time.
