Hello! I am taking Ortho-Tri-Cyclen and I take it around 7:15 at night. Tonight I forgot and took it around 10:55. I read that a pill is not considered late unless it's been 12 hours. Is this right? Do I have anything to worry about?

I have been pretty consistent with my pills, always taking them within the "three hour window". This is the latest I've ever been with it.

Thanks!
