I recently became sexually active and I had a quick question. Last night before I had sex with my boyfriend i took the pill but i actually took it 9 minutes before i was supposed to without thinking. I took it at 10:52pm instead of 11pm, which is when i normally take it. My question is: would that effect anything like a chance of me getting pregnant since i didn't take it at exactly 11pm? Also he used condoms too so i'm pretty sure i'm ok, i just wanted to double check.

You have a three hour window during which you can take your pill and consider yourself a perfect user. So, 9 minutes? Do not make a difference AT ALL. You do not have to consider a pill to be late until it has been more than 12 hours since the pill time.
