MUST you take combined pills at the EXACT SAME TIME every night?
I usually take mine between 8:30 and 12. Is this a bad habit? Is it compromising my protection?
I never miss a pill

I think the recommendation is that you take it at the same time every day but taking it an hour or two later the next day shouldn't matter that much. I think they tell you that just to make sure you remember to take the pill as well as keep the medication level constant in your body.
