Errin pills - missing one pill

I am using Errin pill.
Yesterday i had sex and i forgot to take my pill at 10 PM. i took it at 6.30 AM.
it is the 10th pill in this package. I took all of them on time.
Should i be worried? should i use plan B?

Errin is a generic version of Ortho Micronor and it does not contain estrogen (it contains only a progestin hormone). It is called a mini-pill and it is important to take it within 3 hours from the regular time.

Even though it is likely that you will be ok, taking Plan B might be the safest.
