I have a bc question... I'm on the mini pill and my doctor said I should take it at the same time (within the same 3 hours) every day. I have been so good about it and have an alarm set on my phone to remind me everyday. Well, I just realized I forgot to take it tonight and it's been just over 3 hours. So does this mean it isn't effective for a week now? (Like when I started she said it took a week to be effective.) Just checking bc I don't really want to be pregnant again anytime soon!! Lol.

I'm on the mini pill too. I think it says that if you're more than 3 hours late you need to use another form of protection for 48 hours. Not a full week. I use the alarm on my phone as a reminder too!

Ok, good to know! I guess I should find the info that came with it & re-read it, lol. I know if I didn't have the alarm I would never remember to take it at the same time... I would probably totally forget to take it at all!
