Quick question: I know you're supposed to take the pill at the same time each day. Does anyone know how much leeway there actually is though? Like what if it's an hour after the time you usually take it, or 3 hours? Thanks!

You generally have a few hours on either side of your 'regular time'. Three hours shouldn't be that big of a problem, but the closer you can get to the same time each day, the better.

Remember, if you're worried, you can always use a backup method, such as condoms.
