everyone says to take the pill "around" the same time everyday. what does that mean exactly? how much lee-way do you really have before its considered late? i always take mine exactly at 12pm. maybe once or twice i've taken it at 12:11 or 11:55. thats perfectly fine, right?

You have about a three hour window at most in which to take your pill for you to be taking it correctly. Obviously, the closer you can get to the same time each day the better, but you do have a couple of hours just in case. So, taking your pill off by only 10-15 minutes is nothing to sweat at all.
