Does it matter if the birth control pill is taken at a different hour in the same time of day? Like 7am vs 9am?

In brief: 4 hours

You do want to take the pill at approximately the same time every day, but within four hours is probably still ok.
Using condoms is not a bad idea in general, and is a useful back up contraception if you forget the birth control pills.
