How late can you take the pill From the time you usually take it?

Typically there is a 3-hour "window" in which to keep your regularly scheduled OCP time the same. If outside of that time frame, follow the instructions provided by your pharmacy or physician in regards to missed doses. Some medications will tell you to skip that days dose and take 2 pills at your regular time the following day, but these instructions vary from medication to medication so be sure to check with your physician or pharmacist to be sure.
