Missing one pill is likely okay.  I believe you are supposed to take it either as soon as you remember or take two together if you don't do that.  https://www.webmd.com/sex/birth-control/forgot-to-take-your-birth-control-pills  You should still be protected if you do this.  If you miss more than one pill, you need to call your doctor and I'd use back up like condoms.  good luck
