i am on BC pills and forgot to take todays pill. i started taking BC a week ago today. i usually take it around 8:00 in the morning but now its 3:00 and i just took it. Will this affect it? im not sexually active so im not worried about pregnancy. its just the first time and im worrying over nothing. Reasurance please?

Since you aren't using the pill to protect from pregnancy, this is nothing you need to stress majorly over.

When you're taking hormonal birth control for reasons aside from preventing pregnancy, it IS still important to take your pills correctly, but that's more for the sake of not confusing your body and causing yourself wonkiness.

Since you only JUST started taking birth control, it's going to take a couple months for your body to become acclimated to the hormones, anyhow, so missing a pill today is not going to wreak havoc on your body by any means. Just try and remember your pills at the same time from now on, if after this cycle you find you've been missing your pills often, you may want to speak to your doctor about alternatives you could try. But again, this early in the game, no need to worry. [Smile]
