My daughter missed saturdays dose of birth control pills (novelon) and forgot to take sundays dose on time, so she took 2 pills at 12 midnight on sunday/monday. Should she be taking two pills today (monday) or just one like every day?

1 Doctor Answered
She forgot to take the pill on Saturday and Sunday midnight she had already taken 2 pills. So today she will take only one pill as usual and be on the safer side it's better to use a backup method (condom) for the next 7 days.
