On Loestrin 30 birth control. What is the broad spectrum meaning of "late" on the pack?

Hey, I am a woman, age 19 on the Loestrin 30 birth control . I have a few questions about it that I haven t been able to find answers to. Firstly, when it says that you have taken your birth control late how late is late? If I take it 2 hours late is it late? Also, though I know I am still protected against pregnancy if I only have one late pill , what if I have several in a cycle? I don t mean missing 2 pills in a row, but simply taking my pill a couple of hours late several times? Will I still be protected the next time I am late? None of this is explained on the packaging. Lastly I have experienced an increase in appetite since I started on the pill 10 days ago, yet I have lost weight. (I am 166 cm and weight 63 kg which is down to 60.5) Is this normal? Thank you for your help

By delaying 2 hours of birth pill will not put you in unprotective zone several days missing pill ofcourse you will be out of protection on such circumstances it were to be two days on third day take the prescribed pill following two days under extra protection during that cycle
