birth control question

my girlfriend has been on the pill for about a year now...she was on vacation and she fell 2 days behind....she knew that she could take 2 one day and 2 the next day....does it not become effective after the 2nd day of taking 2 or when does it become effective???

Re: birth control question

You and your girlfriend will need to use back up until she has taken the pill perfectly (on time, no vomiting after, no interfering substances) for seven consecutive days.
