So, I've been on the birth control pill Reclipsen for about four months now and I am looking to change the time I take the pill from 4:30 to 10:30. My doctor said I could just start the new time when I start my new pack, but will I be protected for that month since it is more than a three hour change?
Thanks in advance!

Since this is a combined pill, not a mini-pill, you actually have a 12-hour grace period with pills, rather than three (which is the grace period with minipills).
So, you can trust your doctor here.
