Welcome to ehealthforum,
Missing to take birth control pills more than 2 hours late could be considered as âmissed pillâ. If you have missed taking 2 more than 2 pills at the scheduled time, you might get into risk for pregnancy as the pills may not remain protective. If you have had been sexually active during this time, then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. Sometimes periods are also delayed due to stress, lifestyle changes etc. Wait and watch for your periods. Do not start with your next pack of pills if you suspect to be pregnant. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
