Brief Answer:
since you took two pills the following day you are not at increased risk of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to healthcare Magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns today.

It is good that after missing a pill you have rightly taken two pills the following day and continued with your daily pills later. This does not put you at increased risk of pregnancy. But please don't forget any pills again in this cycle.

You must be knowing that XXXXXXX is very effective in preventing pregnancy. But not 100% effective. So if you don't get your period during the last week ( fourth week) of taking the pills get a pregnancy test done.
I hope this is helpful.
If you have further questions, do write to me. I will be happy to answer.
Best wishes
Dr Rama

Brief Answer:
Your missing pill will not put you at risk of pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome back.
As mentioned earlier, since you took two pills the following day this missing pill will not put you at risk of pregnancy.

What I mentioned was every contraceptive method has its own failure rate. Even if you take XXXXXXX perfectly there is a 0.3% chance of pregnancy with one year use.

If you have further concerns, I will be happy to answer.
Best wishes,
Dr Rama
