I always take my pill at 9:00pm, but one night I stayed out late with some friends and took it at 12:00 midnight. Is that bad?

And also, I think I might have the budding symptoms of a UTI, because I've had one before and I know what they feel like. So I've been drinking TONS of water and it sort of feels like it's going away. It feels wayyy more minor than it did the last time, I barely notice it. Might I be able to "crush it" before it develops into a complete Urinary Tract infection?

You have a three-hour window during which you can take your pill and have it be on time. So if your pill time is 9pm, anything between 6pm and midnight is perfectly fine.

It can be possible to nip a beginning UTI in the bud by drinking lots of water, or taking cranberry supplements. However, an UTI left untreated can have pretty painful consequences, so if the symptoms don't go away in a couple of days, you'll want to go and see your doctor about it.

That's the thing though, there are BARELY symptoms. it just hurt a little when I pee, but maybe 1/8 as bad as it did when I had one before. I didn't pee blood, or have cramps, or have dark or smelly urine. And it only hurts sometimes when I pee.

P.S. I am STD free so that's not a cause for concern

Still, you'll want to try and head anything off before it gets bad. Drinking lots of water is a simple thing to do, and if your symptoms get any worse or don't get any better, you should check in with a doctor.
