Does it matter what time of day ( morning/ night ) you take your birth control pill? I usually take it at 11am but I.sometimes forget it for like 30 min or so. I was thinking that it would be easier to take it at night before my bedtime which is 10pm.

It doesn't matter what time of day you take your pill as long as it is within 12 hours of the same time, each day. If you're taking a mini-pill (progesterone only pill) other than Cerezette, it needs to be taken within 3 hours of the same time, each day.
