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.
No, generally speaking you can take the pill within the hour that you normally take it. However seeing as the pill is a dose or hormones that your body grows acustomed to having it is ideal to take it as close to the same time everyday as possible. As for its effectiveness taking it a few minutes late will not change anything.
What if you normally take yhur birth control pill at 4 but you was 25 minutes late will that hurt anything?
Does taking a placebo pill late make your period come late because last month i took it late and i got my period later but this month iv been taking it at the same time and its still late?
when you mis a pill, chances are that your birth control will not work as well as if you were to take it at the same time each day. antibiotics also can cause the pill to be less affective. so always use a backup method when you miss a pill, take a pill more than an hour late, or if you are on antibiotics.
If you missed one pill and took it the next morning and took your next pill five hours late does this count as two missed pills?
It is good that you read the intructions but if you miss one pill an dthen take it next day it will not be a problem it happend to me . if you read the instruction they will tell you that after 12 hrs passing the time to take the pill you have more risk. but take the forgotten pill and the other one a regular time if it do not pass the 12 hrs.
