Ok this is going to sound really flaky, but I was just about to take my pill today, when I got distracted by the baby... I thought I set it down in the bathroom but now I can't find it! So I figured I lost it and would just take another... I did a better search a little later and still can't find it- now I have myself really worried that I took the earlier one without thinking about it before I tended to the baby (honestly don't recall doing this but as I said I was distracted at the time)... what would happen if I took two???? I have never taken the pill before and just started my first pack yesterday. Please help!
I don't think much will happen. Just so you know, there is a new BC method! It is called Merina. It is an introuterine device and it is said to be as easy as taking it out when you are ready to conceive again and you go back to being as fertile as you were right before having it! It is supposed to be better than the IUD too!! I am going to look into this. It is also good for 5 years like Norplant, but no nasty hormones or thing in you arm!

Don't worry about it! If you took 2 pills nothing bad is going to happen. I did it once and it was fine. The only problem would be if you didn't take it. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
We have the same minds. I think you are ok with taking two too. I had the same thing with my antibiotics I could never remember if I took them or didn't. I'm sure that I missed some doses and doubled others. This disease is pregnancy brain! I can't remember anything and am so ditzy now!
I have to mention to Jules that since you just started the pill and had baby fairly recently you still can get pg.Even though you took 2.I could understand if you had been on the pill avidly for 6 months and happened to forget one the day before,you wouldn't get pg because of all that coverage.But since you just started I would use protection this month just in case.Even though you may not be close to that ovulating time.
