pill too early
Hi Doc
I know the precautions one should take when you' ve accidently missed taking one of the pilss in your pack. What do you do if you' ve taken one too early? I woke up in a daze of panic, half asleep thinking I' d forgotten to take mine the night before and at the speed of light took it at about 10am only to realise I hadn' t forgotten the night before and had now taken the next days pill about 11 hours too early. What now?

Continue as usual, as this will not have any effect on your cycle or safety.
