I am currently on the mini pill because I am breastfeeding. With this pill it has to be taken at the same time (within half an hour) each day. So I am having a hard time tryin to figure out what time of day to take it! I am thinking when I am in bed b/c thats when I always have water and I can keep my pills there all the time too. But lately iv been so tired in the mornings i dont wake up to my alarm and so i have been late taking it! Any suggestions would be great! What time do you take your pill?

I was on the mini pill and had such a hard time taking it at the right time that I got off it. You have to be within 30 minutes for it to be affective. Theres no way you can do that every day!!!

I take the mini pill or pop's as my doctor calls them. I take mine at 2:00 pm, I set an alarm on my phone to remember. 30 min, my doctor told me 3 hours and i been going by that for almost 2 years now.

I take my pill different times of the day (I'm on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo).  Usually though, I'll take my pill before bed.   : D

I usually take mine at 9:30 every morning, once you get in the habit of taking it you wont forget. I feel like a walking pharmacy cause I take 4 diff pills then so it is harder to forget. If you take any other meds, you should take your bc pill at the same time.

I'm on Ortho-Tricyclen Lo also and I usually take it before I go to bed.  The pamphlet that comes with the pills specify that when you are on the white and light blue active pills if you forget to take one then you take it as soon as you remember.  If you only miss one and take it at a later time then it's not really that big a deal.  More than one though and your supposed to use a back up method.

I take my pill at 7am. I do that because then I don't have to worry about taking it at work or school and my daughter Kaelie is usually up a lil after 6 so I'm up by then.
