I started the pill Jan. 8th its the first time ever me using the pill method. I had unprotected sex Jan. 20th. The 2 weeks been pass doctor advised me to use condoms. But the first week I started the pill I took the pill 4 hours late. Then ever since I try my best to be on time I usually take it on time or 1 hour late the latest. Should I be worried? Its Jan. 30th am I late to take the morning after pill If i wasn't effective because I took the pill 4 hours late the first week i started and everyday keep taking it late.
You have an hour leeway, so you're ok there. DO NOT take a morning after pill. You were protected by your birth control pill. There is seldom a time while you take regular birth control pills that you need to take a morning after pill. Do not cloud the issue with all those hormones. You are protected by the regular pill. There are apps to remind you to take your pill if you need something like that.
Taking the Pill four hours late one time is not going to mess anything up! No worries DO NOT, let me repeat, DO NOT take Plan b!!! There is NO need for it and it will just mess your cycle up and give you nasty side effects. An occasional late pill is no big deal, you are still better protected than taking Plan b!
