In brief: Yes
The oral contraceptive pills are intended, due to their low dosages, to be taken every day about the same time each day.
If that is not the case use a "back up" means of contraception until the next period and get a pregnancy test if it is a "no show" anecdotally, "the pill is only 100% effective if held between your knees at all times.".
