Okay I take Trivora for my birth control method and my time to take it is usually 6:30 pm central time, but lately I keep forgetting and ill take it later after that time. I just forgot today and I just now took it (11pm central time). Can I change my time and still be safe? I want to take it at 3pm. So it'll be earlier, will I be able to do it since it will only be a little after 12 hours since I've taken it? HELP!!!
Hi mcguiree1495, no need to be worried. It is okay to change the time to something that can actually easily be a routine. Are you worried about 3pm because it's close enough for you to perhaps feel a bit sick for a little while? If you are worried about side effects- which can't really be predicted because every woman's body can respond in different ways to certain levels of hormones- you could always wait until a day has passed at least before taking the bc again-- but then you would have to use an additional method of birth control for at least a week just to make sure you're covered by the bc again. Which we recommend people do anyway- since bc doesn't cover STI transmission.
