I believe I've heard on here that there is a 3 hour window for the times you take your pill. Does this mean 1 1/2 hour before and 1 1/2 after your normal time or 3 hours before or 3 hours after?
My normal time is around 10:30-10:45. Last night I was about to go to sleep at 12:55 and realized I need to take my pill. Will this cause any irregularity? Is this counted as a missed pill, or am I still good? Were I to have sex, would the pill alone be less effective?

If you're usually consistent in taking your pill, one missed/late pill will not significantly decrease its overall effectiveness, especially because it wasn't super late in the first place. You should be perfectly okay in terms of protection.
