Hi there! I know that it's really important to be on time when starting a new pill pack, but I was wondering how late is considered to be "late" when starting a pill pack. I have had to do a lot of traveling between different time zones during the last few months, I forgot to change the time on my alarm to match the current time zone. Today I was supposed to start my new pill pack, but took the first pill 2 hours later that I usually do. Does this constitute a "late pill" or a "late start"? Thanks!

Nope, two hours is perfectly fine. You have a three hour window during which you can take your pill and consider it on time.
