Will birth control be effective even when taking twice in one day

Patient: If I accidentally took two birth control pills will this lower it’s effectiveness?

 

 

Doctor: Taking two birth control pills will not lower its effectiveness. It is not recommended that you take two pills, unless y ou’ve missed the previous dose. Take care.
