Hi I had a question about birth control. I have been on birth control for a while now (around 2 years or so) and take it every night however not at the same time every night but still at night maybe 2-3 hours apart. I used a condominium for double protection however it had broken. Since I am on birth control is this enough if I don’t take it at the same time every night? I have never missed a pill but it’s not taken at the exact same time but is taken every night. I was just wondering if there was great cause for concern here and whether I should be taking plan b or not?

No, since you never missed a pill and started always on time (no more than 7 days without hormone) you shouldn't be worried about having an unwanted pregnancy

The pharmacist is solely responsible for the answer.
