Patient :I just got on birth control and the seven day window you need for it to be completely effective was up Thursday. Today, I have been on it for ten days. I have been taking the pill usually at 7, but there have been times where I have taken it as early as 6, and there have been times where I have taken it as late as 8:30. Will this decrease the effectiveness of the pill?
