I am a Sunday started and I take my pill at 3:15 but today (my starting day) I didn't have my pills with me and just took it about ten minutes ago (around 5:20). I've been on the pill since October and am never late.. what are my risks of pregnancy if I have sex? Is being two hours late a hugie? I know there is a three hour time slot in which you can take them but I didn't know if it was different for your first pill of the cycle or any of that.

Two hours is not a huge deal. You do have about a three hour window before a pill is considered late, so you should be fine here.
