If you forget to take your Birth Control pill, don't take two to make up for the one you forgot! Start fresh the next day. Try to take them at the same time everyday also. Your less likely to spot bleed or start spotting when you forget your pill.

If you had missed a pill or been late with a pill, causing you to take the morning after pill, then you should use a back up method of birth control for the next seven days.

The morning after pill doesn't make the birth control pill less effective.
