Is it okay to always forgot to take your birth control pills but you take twice in the next day?

Hi Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHer.

Birth control pills are highly effective at preventing pregnancy if taken correctly. Missing a dose or two puts you at risk for pregnancy. I would advise not missing if you can help it. Here is a link that will give you information on what to do if you miss, depending on what pill you are taking. I hope this helps!
