My gf and I have been just relying on the pills to have sex. She is on her week 4 pills ("reminder pills"), but she took them late for 1-2 hours in the past 2 days. Is this okay? In the leaflet of her pills, it says that missing one of these pills doesn't seem to matter much. You can just throw them away and take the next one the day after until you finish the pack. I'm guessing that these pills are not important like the active pills.

The reminder pills are just that - a reminder. People get used to taking the pill, so the reminder pills are there to keep you in good habits. I don't take mine. It doesn't matter if you take them on time, late, or not at all. So, no worries, ok?
