Birth control

I've been on birth control (Pimtrea) for a few months now and I always try to take my pill exactly at 7pm, and I've never taken it later than 7:15. Well the other day I was busy and didn't get to it until 7:30. Will the 30 minutes cause it to be less effective? Does that count as a late pill? Thanks

Hello again, hey12356

Thank you for your post.

That short of a time won't make a difference. Forgetting for a day is considered a missed pill.
