Customer Question

Change the time taking the pills.
Hello. My normal time to take the pills is at 12 midnight. I was supposed to start my new pack on Sunday 00:00. However, I changed my time to 3 pm. On Monday I took it around the same time. I had sex on Sunday and Monday. But the same night I accidentally took my Tuesday pill according to the old time table (00:00) and same as Wednesday. Can I just take my pills according to the old time table? And was I protected on Sunday and Monday since the time I took the pills were off.
Thank you.

you can go back to the old time table. That will be fine
taking them at different times short term won't affect anything
you will be fine
