No: Eleven minutes late is too late if a person is trying to get on a plane after the gate door has locked, but 11 minutes makes no difference with birth control pills. The usual instructions for when to take a birth control pill that was forgotten earlier the same day, is to take it as soon as one remembers it and then stay on one's usual pill-taking time schedule. If worried, ask the prescribing Dr.
