Microgestin Fe 1/20 - With the time change due to daylight saving do I still continue to take it as?
Added 3 Nov 2014:
I was normally taking it at 9am but do I need to adjust that to 8 am or can I contiue taking it as I normally would?
This is actually a very good question. The low dose birth control is actually really time dependent. so changing due to daylight saving time is actually the correct way to take the medication. However, if you use to take it at 9PM and don't want to take it now at 8PM, you can either stay with 9PM and just be cautious for the day you change or you can take a more cautious route and go 830PM then 9PM. The low dose birth control is finnicky on the time frame and missing a dose by a few hours dose increase the risk of pregnancy, and the main concern is on a missed day not a few hours. However, better cautious than pregnant sometimes.
