Missed taking my second white pill for the day, can I take it at night even though my scheduled time is in the afternoon or can I take it tomorrow along with my first brown placebo pill

Hello, Courtney! How are you?

Yes, that should be fine.

But why are you taking 2 a day? Oral contraceptives as usually just dosed as one tablet daily, except in very rare cases to stop heavy bleeding, as emergency contraception and etc.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, breakthrough bleeding and PMS-like symptoms.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Hi Verwon, thank you!
I ended up taking it about 5 hours after my scheduled time but no, I am not taking two a day. The only reason I would would be because I forget one for the day (it says in the instructions to double it up the next day if you miss the previous day but it all depends on where you are in the week).

The three day weekend must have threw me off and I was away from home so I somehow (still confused how this happened) skipped taking my pills on the correct days. Regardless of what happened, I accidentally took three pills in one day (the Sunday one early this morning and the Monday and Tuesday one just a little while ago. It was obviously not intentional, however now I am not sure what to do--will I be ok? Should I just continue my pack as normal and use additional protection? I don't want to get sick
