Does missing taking birth control pills affect periods ?

I have currently bin on the combined pill now for a month and ive started my new pack, i keep forgetting to take the pill or I misplace them and so ive had to take 2 a day just so Im keeping on track with them, im up to the 10th day of taking them since my 7 day break and im worried this will effect my periods later or will have an impact, I dont worry a lot however as Ive bin using the most common know method of contraception and this is effective, what is your opinion on this?

The way you are taking your pills will be ineffective.Taking 2 a day more than once in the same cycle will not leave you protected.If this method is not suiting you,i suggest you try a different method of contraception.
