Doctor

A:   I understand your concern about oral contraceptives. Let me reassure that there would be no problem in changing the hour in which you take your medication. I would suggest you to take it in the mornings or when it’s more convenient for you but try to take it at the same time every day.
For better compliance, I would wait until the end of this cycle and start your new package with your new medication time. I wish you the best.
