This is somewhat of an emergency b/c today was the last day of my first cycle of BC pills. I wanted to change the time I take it b/c the time I take it now is too inconvenient. Is it possible to change it now or is it too early?

You should be able to change your time no problem if it's within three hours of your normal time. If you're going for a drastic change, you'd likely be safest backing up for one week.

It would be fine to change the time you take you pills now. The time at which you take your pills during your placebo week really doesn't matter, as they are just placebo pills, and so long as you switch to your new time and continue taking your pills correctly during your next month of active pills, you'll be protected.

(I must have misunderstood. I missed where you said you were starting a new pack. Thanks, dailicious, for the clarification!)
