    Hiya, basically I have just started taking marvelon (a combined contraceptive pill) and have a few questions. My gp was rubbish at answering these and the internet and booklet you get with the pills have been too vauge!

    1) I know you need to take the pill at the same time each day, but what lee-way do you have? I have decided on 6pm to take it, however yesterday I acidentally took it at 8pm after forgetting... how damaging is this? or is it ok if it is just rough?

    2) Many internet sites say it is preferable that Marvelon is taken in the evening; does anyone know why this is? and what constitutes the evening?

    thanks v much, I know these are quite precise but obviously I want it to be as effective as possible!

    On my marvellon pack it has instructions for taking a pill late, so have another look at yours.

    I would class evening as being between 6-8pm.

    Hey with Marvelon pills, there are quite detailed instructions which involve telling you about a 12 hour leeway. Just read it through. My nurse told me evening was best because you're less likely to be nauseous having eaten food.
