Is it okay to take birth control a little bit out of schedule, like two hours late or early?

In brief: Yes

An hour here or there usually does not make a difference.
However a delay may sometimes cause breakthrough bleeding. To avoid this it is best to set your alarm and take it at the same time each day.
