Same small chance: If on a combination pill (2 hormones in the pill), chances of pregnancy are not noticeably increased in this situation. That means the small chance of pregnancy did not change due to taking the Monday pill one day late. In other words, the chance of pregnancy is small, is still present, and is the same chance as if the Monday pill were taken on time.
