  • No. My OB said that you have a 2 hour window from the time you originally started taking it. So if you take it every morning at 8, it's ok if you take it anywhere from 6-10.

  • See when I took the pill I was told if you miss it by one hour it could drop its effectiveness to 70% so I set an alarm on my phone and ended up only being on it for 6 months. However; my cousin never took it at the same time and I don't think she got pregnant on it.
