Hi ! I am on Orsythia BC and tomorrow is the first day of a new pack. I am also traveling tomorrow, and will be in a different time zone from the second pill through the rest of that first week. I'm confused as to when to take my pill . I usually take it around 6 pm . The time difference is six hours ahead . Help?

So, if I understand correctly, you'll be in the same time zone you always are when you take the first pill of the pack.
You'll want to take the next pill roughly 24 hours later. Know that you have a 3-hour window on either side of when you usually take your pill in which you can take it and it will still be considered to have been taken on time.
If you're having trouble figuring out what time it will be in the time zone you are usually in, you can go online and find a time zone converter that will help you figure that out.
