Hii am on noriday birthcontrol pillsi recently took 2 pills

Patient

Q: Hi...i am on noriday birthcontrol pills...i recently took 2 pills by mistake thinking i missed. This happened last week thursday i thought i didnt take thursdays pill , woke up after midnight and took friday pill by accident thinking i missed and i got my days mixed up. Should i let friday pass seeing that i took friday pill way earlier n just take saturday pill at my regular time? Will i b secure from pregnancy ?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,
Now that you have accidentally taken 2 pills without missing any , there is no real need to worry at all. You should not miss your Friday pill now and instead continue with your Saturday pill on Friday, i.e. just continue the single pill schedule without giving a gap at all. You shall finish your pack a day prior, which is fine, but at least you would be protected throughout.
Taking an extra pill is not harmful but missing a pill is.
I hope i have answered your query in detail,
Wishing you good health,
Regards
