  • if you miss a day of BC you should never take more than one dose a day. that can serious screw with your system. any time that you miss a pill there is a chance.

  • Call your doctor and discuss it with them. They'll be able to advise you best. But three in one day doesn't sound like a good idea. What do the directions say about a missed dose?

  • if you miss a day or you're not taking them at the same time everyday it increases your chances of conception.

    you should never take more than one dose per day, if you missed 2 days, just start back up, maybe set an alarm so you know when to take it everyday. i'm not sure of the effects of taking more than one dose, if any. if you're concerned you may want to call your doc.

  • Use condoms for the rest of this month. and don't do that again.

  • use condoms, you will likely have some spotting. You could also get pretty sick to your stomach and have cramps. triple dosing yourself is not an effective method. I would stop taking that pack, have your period, and start a new pack.
