Missed first day of diane35 pill

m on diane35 for 3months now. I was supposed to take my new pack on a saturday morning but forgot it but took it on sunday morning. I had sex sunday. Which is beyond the 7-pill free days or it's probably the 9thd day, Will it ruin the efficacy of diane35?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
1 day delay in starting with your pill pack will not cause any harm to the efficacy of the pills. Continue to take the rest of the pill pack without missing any pill in between. If you further miss any pill in between, use back-up contraception.
Take care.
