Couple Hours Off With Taking My Blue Pills

Hi, I've been on Lo Loestrin for the past month and a half or so. For the past couple days, I have been kinda sloppy with taking my pills on time. I'm supposed to take them at 1pm, but I forgot until about 4 pm. I have done this twice this week, actually yesterday and today, should I be worried about using condoms next time I have intercourse within the next week, or is it close enough to the normal time that I don't have to worry too much?

Hello, Abby! How are you?

No, you should be fine, unless your doctor says otherwise. There's generally a window of 12 to 24 hours, before it's actually considered that you missed a pill, so taking them a couple hours late is usually considered fine.

Typical side effects to OCs may include nausea, headache, bloating, irregular bleeding and PMS like symptoms.

If you have a smartphone, you may want to look into getting a reminder app, there are many that are free and will nag you to take your medication, I've found them very helpful to avoid missing doses.

Is there anything else I can help with?
