Pill Question watch

    Hey guys,

    Anon or delete please

    I'm new to the pill only been on it two weeks, i've been told to take it at the same time of day, but im going away soon and with a 7 hour time difference it means i'll be asleep when i should be taking it in UK time...
    What do i do?


    Take it as soon to that time as you possibly can

    If you take the progesterone-only pill, it's only effective if you take it at the same time every day. If you take the combined pill, you have a 12 hour window to take it anyway. Hope this helps!

    What pill is it? As Lindsey said its ok so long as its not a POP. Work out how many hours late you will be and take it as soon as you wake up.

    I would advise you ring up your GP/ take to a Pharmacist about this to confirm before you go though. Also this should be in the Sexual health forum.
