    This has probs already been asked so I do apologise!

    I've only just recently gone on the pill and no one has explained to me.....with the clocks going forward should I be taking my pill at the normal time or an hour earlier? (which would be my normal time before the clock change)

    I read somewhere it won't do much damage but would be advised to take the pack you are on an hour earlier then go back to your normal time on the next one. I'm right at the start of my pack so i'd be doing this for a few weeks.

    Are you taking your's earlier or as normal?


    Just continue taking it as normal. I always have. Depending on whether you're on the POP or combined pill, you have a window of 3-12 hours before a pill is counted as missed anyway - changing the time by 1 hour is fine.
