YAZ...just a question

For anyone who takes Yaz.. (or any BC, i think).. you know how it says to take it at the same time each day? Does it matter if you are off by like an hour? Like I aim to take it at 8, but sometimes I lose track of time and take it at 9. Would it be less effective? Im nervous. lol thanks

  • Yes, an hour matters. I was told to set the alarm clock to be sure I took it at the same time each day. So much for sleeping in on weekends. Ugh to b/c pills of any kind.
