For over 10 years, teens have been asking us questions on every topic imaginable. While we are no longer taking new questions, we have a wealth of information we would like to share with teenagers.

My question is: If I don't take my pill at the exact same time every night, like if I'm a hour late or something, will it still work like it's supposed to? Thank you!
We do recommend that you take the birth control pill at the same time every day, but we really mean just don't bounce back and forth from morning to night. If you are taking it within the same 3 hour period every day you are doing fine.
