So i extended my last cycle by 2 days (meaning i took birth

Customer Question

Hi, so i extended my last cycle by 2 days (meaning i took birth control for an extra 2 days), then started my next pack 2 days later. I had unprotected sex during the first week (day 6) but on missed day 5's pill. I took both pills on day 6. It's day 8 now and out of paranoia, the past 2 days i've been double dosing. ūüė¨ Is there any chance i could have gotten pregnant? I'm taking diane 35 btw.

HelloAs long as you take a double dose once the day after missing a pill you are OK.Double dosing beyond that is simply overdosing.You can take a blood pregnancy test at anytime, even early on.I don't think you are pregnant.

So the fact that i started my pack later than i should have would not have affected the effectiveness of the pill?
