With the progestin-only pill or minipill, you have to use a backup method for 72 hours if you take the pill more than three hours late. The progestin only pills, like Cerazette, Errin, and Micronor, are much less forgiving of irregular pill-taking habits.
The instructions for taking the birth control pill are the same for women of all ages. Take the birth control pill daily, at about the same time every day.
If you take the pill only after you have intercourse the pill will have no effect!! only if you take the pill how it is instructed and daily at the same time every day then will it work! one slip up and it could course you a problem.
For the birth control pill to be effective in preventing pregnancy, you have to take it every day.
You take the combined birth control pill every day
No, you are OK and you would have to skip a lot more to have a pregnancy worry. Take your pill the same time every morning and you won't have to worry about it.
A small amount of variation when taking the pill should not affect the outcome. You need to take the pill around the same time every day.
It depends on what pill you are using, if you are on a "mini-pill" of only progesterone you need to take it every 24 hours give or take 1.5 hours on either side. Taking a mini-pill even 3 hours late is the same as missing a pill. Taking most BCP, a combination of estrogen and progesterone - as long as you take it every day - you are protected from pregnancy.
Hello. If you have been taking BCP every day and have not missed a pill then you should be protected against pregnancy. However it is best and very advisable to take the pill at the SAME TIME every day without fail hun. This will protect you more against pregnancy. It is never too late to start taking the pill at the same time everyday. Take care. :o)
You can take your birth control at any time that is convenient for you, as long as you take your birth control every day at the same time.
Providing you take one pill every day then its ok.
no! if you take it anytime within 1-3 hours of the same time every day, you should be fine.
Yes, 1 morphine pill every 12 hr and 1 10.50 lartab every 8 hr
You should set a time (9 am, noon, 9 pm, anytime that's convenient to you) to take your pill. It should be taken at this same time every single day to ensure a steady intake of the hormones in the medication.
If you miss a pill take 2 the next day. One pill doesn't matter that much in a long run. It is when you miss several days that you have a problem. Start taking your pill the same time every day and you are less likely to forget.
no.you should take the pill everyday at the same time.
That's right, take one pill per day.
You are told to take a pill every hour. You have 3 pills. How long before they are all gone?
The pill is over 98% effective by itself against getting pregnant. You are making the right step by taking it at the same time every day. I have been on the pill, taking it at the same time for 8 years, with no other protection, and have never been pregnant.
try to take that pill if you can. you can take that pill if it is not to close to the other dose of that same pill. other wise skip that dose of pill because you do not want to overdose
This varies in every women. It's best if you stick to the same time everyday but take the pill no later than 4 hours.
Yes you do. Take birth control, one pill every day. When the pack finishes you start a new pack.
Simply take the pill or throw it away. It has no active ingredient. It is there simply to help you remember to take a pill every day. For BC to work properly, you need to stay on a strict schedule.
You may take a blood pressure pill every other day if that is how the doctor prescribed the medicine. Medicine should always be taken as prescribed.
if they're the same color (=content), it's okay
It would depend on what type of sleeping pill it is. The dosage is different for every pill.
