Question
I usually take my birth control pill at 6-8 but last night i came home at midnight and took it right away.
Can i get pregnant? Is the pill still effective?

Answer
Alisa, There should not be much problem from taking your birth control pill just a few hours late. However, I really don't recommend hormonal birth control. Do you have any side effects from this? How is your health? Please write back at CHERYL51@aol.com
Also, you can get pregnant even taking the birth control period correctly and regularly. There is no birth control method that is 100% safe in preventing pregnancy.
