Question

Yasmin

I am on the pill (Yasmin), my problem is I take my pill everyday but not at the same time as recommended. I do shift work so sometimes I get home at 6am and take my pill at 8am, sometime I get home at 10pm and shold leave the house again at 6am, so I take my pill at around 11/12 but I take it everyday never miss a pill.

Are my chances of falling preggies while on the pill higher than those of someone who takes the pill at the same time everyday?

It doesnt have to be the EXACT same time everyday, but try not more than a couple of hours later, every 12hrs usually. 2 hours later is still fine.
