Can the effectiveness of birth control pills reduce if I miss two tablets ?

I m on birth control . I m on Loestrin 24 Fe and have been on it for 2 years. I missed 2 pills in the third week of my last pack. I finished the pack instead of starting a new one that Sunday. I didn t start a new pack until the next Sunday. I still had my period. It came on time and it was regular. Was the effectiveness of my pill changed?

welcome to health care magic
If you forget 1 or more pills and you miss a period, take a home pregnancy test as soon as possible. If the test is positive, stop taking your pills.but as ur periods are regular n on time need not worry.but see to it that it wont repeat again.
good luck.
