In brief: Yes

Oral contraceptives only work if you take them. You need to take them at about the same time every day (morning or evening) so that they trick your brain into thinking you already are pregnant, and do not ovulate.
If you miss a pill, take it as soon as you realize, but if you miss more than two you should use some other form of birth control, such as condoms.
