Re: Can you change the time you take your pill?

it should be fine. you are not increasing the time between ending your old pack and starting a new pack. you can even change the time during your pack. it is advise that you do not go over a six hour gap. if you think you are extremely fertile, go ahead and use a backup form of birth control for the next seven days.
