Hi I started my new pack of pills 5 days ago, and i take it at 730-8 everynight, but im wondering if it will make a big diff if i start taking them at 8 tommorow morning just because i start school and its easier to remember in the mornin when im going to school.

I would say 12 hours difference is too much at a time. If you want to change the time you take your pills by more than an hour or so, you need to do so at the beginning of the pack.

I would strongly advise against making this switch.

If you do, you should probably use a backup method of birth control for the remainder of your cycle.

Nursing is a work of heart!
