Taking norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol tablets. I missed pill by two hours am I still protected? Does it always have to be at the same time?
Just take pill daily: It is best to remember taking your contraceptive pills every day at about the same time so that the level of the hormones in your blood remains rather constant and stable.

You'll be happy you did that when you can say you've been free of HPV and/or other STDs years down the road. ...Read more
