This pill pack which I started last week, I've been taking the pill at around 11pm. However, there were like 2 days I took it at 12am and one day I took it a 1am. Could this be messing up my pill cycle because I didn't really have the pill that day but the next?

The goal is to have right around 24 hours between each pill. Your body doesn't really care whether it's Monday or Tuesday...just that (ideally) you stay right around that 24 hour between pills mark. With combination pills you have a somewhat larger grace period before a pill would be considered late or missed than you do with a progesterone only (POP/mini-pill) pill. But if your goal is to have perfect use (or as close to perfect use as you can get outside the lab), then you want to stay as near to 24 hours between pills as possible.
