When you miss two pills in a row, here is an example of how you should take them:

monday: missed pill
tuesday: missed pill
wednesday: take two pills (monday's and tuesday's)
thursday: take two pills (wednesday's and thursday's)
friday: back to taking just one pill.

So when you miss two pills, you need to take two pills two days in a row. That's probably what it tells you on your package insert. If you'd like to tell us exactly what kind of pill you're on, we can link you to that product's information on the web.

Take care

Anytime you miss 2 or more pills in-a-row, the effectiveness of the pill decreases (it is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy when used consistently and correctly).

That is great that you doubled-up (although, it sounds like you took all three pills on the same day? That's not the correct way...I can explain if you'd like), but you did take Plan B which is a great option.

Unfortunately, you will need to wait until your next expected period (about 2 weeks) until you can know for sure.

I'm sorry we can't provide more exact information, but please let us know if you have any additional questions.
