Currently i'm doing my last major exams, and for the last week i havent been exact with taking my pill, this morning i took is about 45 mins before the time, yesterday it was a bit over an hour after the time etc, and i cant be sure what my other times were like for the week, i know one time it was after like 5 hours though. I just had unprotected sex with my boyfriend, him cumming inside of me (we have been tested for STD's and i've been on the pill for nearly a year). Would my pill be still effective, because of my irregular times of taking it? Or should i go to the doc tomorrow to get the morning after pill?

It's not likely to do much for you.

Yes, you may have decreased the effectiveness of your pill, but EC won't offer much beyond that right now. You can certainly call your clinic or GYN and get a second opinion.

But I'd really encourage you to back up the pill with condoms, if for no other reason than birth control.
