No problem.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.

Since you have irregular periods due to PCOS(Poly cystic ovarian syndrome) doctor advised Duoluton((levonorgestrel + ethinylestradiol) which regularize your menstrual cycle.

As you have mentioned you missed one dose on 24th july, you need not worry. You can take two pills today(25th july 2014) and Continue medication as per your regular dosing schedule.

You do not worry missing one pill will not cause any problem.
Please take pills certainly and Do NOT skip the pill in future.

Hope I have answered your query .
If you have any query I will be happy to help you.
Thank you.
