I know they say to take the pill the same time every day, but are they talking like at the same minute every day?? Or within an hour or so? UUHH I can already see I am gonna forget to take it like I should lol

I would say that as long as you take it within the same hour you should be ok. If your unsure then just call your dr.

If it is the mini-pill, then you need to take it the same time every single day-I'd say within 5 minutes-set an alarm, lol. With combination pills, within 1-2 hours should be fine. I used to take mine before bed every night, sometimes that was 9, sometimes 11 and I never had any problems.

Yup. With ortho tricyclin you should take it within an hour or two for it to be most effective.

I always take mine at night, but it does vary.... and I haven't had any problems yet (hopefully NEVER!).

Like ZacksMama said, for the minipill you have to take it at the same time. For the other pills, you should take it within 1-2 hours.
