so i live in the UK and take the pill at 7pm (BST). i’m going away to America soon and i’m aware time zones are different. where i am going there is a 5 hour difference, with America being in front. I asked my mum and she said i would have to take my pill at our time over there, meaning i’d have to take it at midnight. is this correct? even if it is, i don’t want to have get up at midnight every night. is there any way for me to just adjust it? or will i have to do it at midnight?

take a look at the leaflet that comes with it, i believe you can change the time if it's not by too much time but check.

Hiiii, don’t quote me on this but I’m on the pill too and my doctor actually told me that it doesn’t matter what time you take it within the day x check! It may not even matter!

People are told to take it the same time everyday as it is easier to remember and make into a routine according to my doctor ^^

The combined pill it shouldn't matter. Just take it as close to normal as possible, but 5 hours won't make a difference. With the mini pill timing is more important.
