If you take your birth control an hour late and you are not ovulating can you become pregnant?

I am a male, and u prob. want an answer from a female, and although I am not a doctor, an hour late will very likely not make a difference. U should be fine. If it were days or something like that, it would be a different situation. Of course u can always ask your doctor, but it is highly unlikely. Doctors tell u to take your birth control at the same time everyday so u are less likely to forget. That said, there is a time window allowed for these things, and forgetting a dose by an hour is def. no foul no harm. God Bless

No, taking birth control an hour late will not cause you to get pregnant. It is optimal to try to take it at the same time each day but if you are late a few hours either way it wont hurt as long as you take a pill each day.
