If i missed a pill, took two the next day, then missed one again, and took two again the next day is that the same as missing two in a row?

Hi Anonymous,
No. Missing two pills would be on consecutive days. Since you missed one day, doubled up on the next day....missed again and doubled up the next day, you should be ok although you should always use a backup method for at least the next 7 days that you take your pills without any misses. This is more for a precaution since you missed your pills.

I hope this helps.
