Welcome to ehealthforum.
Do not miss taking your birth control pills on time. If it was only a onetime delay, then it will not affect the efficacy. Do not worry.
If you have been taking it late most of the time, then the protection could be in question. Try to take them at a similar time daily without missing any of them. Continue to take the rest of the pills on time everyday.
