Birth Control.

I have never taken birth control and I just got on the pill. They say to take it at the same time every day. But on the weekends I have to get up for work at 5am and then during the week I dont get up til 9am. Is it bad to take them at a different time only two days a week? Thanks!!

    If you are taking the mini pill it is very tricky. The mini pill only lasts in your system for about 24-26 hours. You have about a two hour window past your normal time to take your pill for it to still be effective. And if you take it 4 hours earlier then switch back to a time 4 hours later on the weekdays then it is not as effective and it would be safest to use a back up method. That is why it is so important to take it at the same time every day.

      I've heard it is suppose to be pretty consistent every day so I am not sure if the variation on the weekends would affect it or not.
