DO I need to take plan B?

I'm on birth control and all month I have taken the pill between 8 pm and 10 pm (a two hour window). However I'm aware that this is not very regular. Then yesterday my boyfriend didn't pull out and I didn't take my birth control until 1 am. (5 hours late) because I have been so irregular, should I take plan B?

Hello, yayajls.

Thank you for writing us, today.

There is about a 1% risk of pregnancy when on the pill and having full intercourse. Although you have taken the pill late, you have been taking it daily. It's up to you whether to take Plan B or not.
