Hi Anon

This kind of emergency birth control should be used for emergencies only, not as a method of birth control. 

You didn't say how close together you took them. The same week? Month? 

In general, taking it twice in a few months or a year is fine. Taking it twice in a week or a month is using it as birth control and is not a good idea.
