i take my pill at 11am and i missed taking it this morning, how long do i have left to take it? do i have 1 or 2 hours ?
As long as you take it as soon as you remember, if it is on the same day it is due, you are fine. If you discover you have missed yesterday's pill then you would need to take it as soon as you noticed, even if you would be taking two at a time (but never take more than two at a time), then you would use back up, like condoms, for the next seven days. Really an hour earlier or an hour later than the normal time is considered "on time" but with the Pill, it is fine if you are occasionally a few hours late-you dont have to use back up unless you completely forget it a whole day.
