No: A four hour delay is not likely to be of concern. Keep up with daily use for effect.

Agree with Dr. H : You may consider getting an IUD, if your schedule may cause you miss the pills. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
