I take my pill in the evening, but what happens if I want to go off on holiday? I haven't been on holiday while I've had to take my pill, I'm just interested for future refrence!

What happens with the time zones? Say I normally take it about 6pm and I go away somewhere thats like 8hours ahead? would I have to take it at (squints eyes to work it out)2am?
Just for future refrence!
(thinking about it now, this would be better suited in the birth control section!)

I went to paris and rome over spring break with a friend. Instead of takig it at 3:30 I took it at 9:30. If you set an alarm, like I did on my cellphone, to take it - just wake up and take it if you're sleeping. Or perhaps if you're planning on going on a major trip, try to arrange your scheduling for your pill at the start of a new month so that you will end up taking it at a reasonable hour no matter where you go.

So I could do that, change my time I mean after a week off?

I always thought I could, but was never sure-which is unlike me!

I figure it'd be better than taking it at 3am or something. It would cause a lot of uneeded stress on your body to stay up really late to take it. I figured it was best to just switch times. I've had to do that before due to job times and whatnot. Where it was easier to start a new month taking it at the time I normally had lunch break instead of risking missing it every day during a busy time.
