Daylight Savings Time and the Pill? watch

    Do I continue taking my pill at the same time? I have 3 days left of pills for this cycle and I was wondering whether this would affect anything, as this is my last week on the pill. Last time I have had sex (with partner pulling out) was 4 days before clocks turned an hour forward and I've been taking my pills the same time without adjustment to the additional hour (eg 6 pm during winter time, still 6 pm during summer time)

    I would be confident that +/- 1 hour is ok for the contraceptive pill. Stick to the same 'new' time.

    As last person said, one hour shouldn't matter at all. I'd say you'd be fine as long as you take it some time pm each day tbh. When packs say "the same time" they normally mean "dinner time ish" rather than "exactly 6:32".
