Well in my defense it was perfectly coherent.
I just didn't notice the link.
You also made me feel a lot better about myself for falling for it yesterday, so thankyou...
Artemisia you look gorgeous
. Hope everything gets sorted as planned and things go fine and dandy for being together in London.

I'm not 100% sure about whether this works for hormonal reasons, but for preventing pregnancy reasons, there's 12hrs leeway for being "on time", and it is still effective.
Though I do not believe the 12 hour leeway applies to all pills -- make sure you read the information.
This made me do some reading! Silly question, but a "failure rate of aprroximately 1% per year when taken correctly" DOES mean 1 in 100 couples who are on it each year as I've always thought right? Cause 1% of sexy-times would be considerably scarier
Common sense would suggest the former, though. And yay, awesomeness - Levlen Ed, which I'm on, gives 12 hrs leeway. Cause shit, am I useless with stuff like that!
@Spacemilk - if it's a mini-pill, you won't have much leeway (maybe 3 hrs max?) but once you've checked the info and made sure you have, say, 12 hrs, I think the most important thing is to link it to something else you do daily without fail so that you don't accidentally miss one. If you're not going to remember at dinner, go with the morning: but don't think "I'll take my pill before work each morning" because you don't go to work on the weekends. Associate it with brushing your teeth after breakfast, or eating breakfast (provided you never skip it!), or your morning shower. The time when I was best at taking mine on time was actually when I was on anti-depressants as I took them both at the same time, and I'd quickly learned that skipping one anti-D would have me under my desk crying and suicidal 3 days after the missed one... an effect which is much more instant and tangible (and thankfully is non-permanent) compared with pregnancy! I need to get back into the mentality of "brush teeth, take pill".
