I tooka pill at my normal time yesterday, went to bed, woke up this morning, went to take an allergy pill and took a birth control pill instead (so, I took a pill at 10pm and then another at 6:30 am). Should I resume my regular schedule tonight(meaning I will have taken 3 pills in 24 hours) or am I right in thinking I’ll be fine to just take a pill tomorrow morning at 6:30?

    Assuming this is a combined HBC (has estrogen, progesterone, and possibly a placebo/no-hormone week or 4 days), I’d say it’d be fine to just take your next pill tomorrow at 6:30. You should probably try to stick to the 6:30 time for the rest of the pack, or move it slowly “down” by an hour or so each day.

    If it’s a POP (progesterone only pill or minipill), then definitely take the next one at 6:30, and if you want to get back to 10pm without compromising your protection, you’d pretty much need to take 2 pills in 24 hours again. (First at 6:30am, then again at 10pm.)
