I'm going to be visiting my boyfriend this Friday. I'm currently on Alesse, and I was wondering if it's alright to take bc pills a day early without losing any protection because as far as sex goes, we've only been using bc pills for the past year. I've never taken them early or late, and I take them at the same time every day since getting on Alesse one year and a couple months ago.
At the moment I am on my sugar pill week, and I'm on the second day now.
I would like to take the pill on Saturday the 19th if I could (I don't want to take it two days early unless that's okay - since I would be arriving on Friday the 18th and it would be nice, but I don't want to take any big risks with getting prego).
I don't know anything about taking pills early, so any information would be really helpful.
