Missed pills on Cerazette and Cerelle
Cerazette and Cerelle are both desogestrel mini pills, which means you’ve got 12 hours before your late pill is missed (compared to the 3 hours on other mini pills). So if you’ve missed a Cerazette pill or missed a Cerelle pill and fewer than 12 hours have passed, you’re still protected against pregnancy and don’t need to worry — just take your birth control as soon as you remember.
Missed pills on Noriday and Norgeston
Most mini pills have a 3-hour window during which they need to be taken. The one exception is pills containing desogestrel, like Cerazette and Cerelle.
If you’re using brands like Noriday or Norgeston as your birth control, these mini pills should be taken at the same time every day — with only three hours of wiggle room. Once you’ve passed that three-hour marker, you’re not considered protected against pregnancy and should use a back-up method like condoms.
