I am currently taking my regular birth control pill every night at 8 PM. I am going to be traveling abroad where it is 7 hours ahead so that would be 3 AM there. Can I move up my regular time to 6.30 PM to take my pills at 1 AM there?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
There are two types of birth control pills. Common combined pills and progesterone only pills.
In that case, I suggest you double the dosing of pills on the change over days, and this will help to keep the schedule with respect to its contraceptive efficacy.
But one point is clear for both types. You need to be regular for rest of the days without any miss.
