Yasmin
I am on the pill (Yasmin), my problem is I take my pill everyday but not at the same time as recommended. I do shift work so sometimes I get home at 6am and take my pill at 8am, sometime I get home at 10pm and shold leave the house again at 6am, so I take my pill at around 11/12 but I take it everyday never miss a pill.

Are my chances of falling preggies while on the pill higher than those of someone who takes the pill at the same time everyday?
