Once per day: Reclipsen and other birth control brands are designed to be taken one pill per day as directed. Altering the regimen will affect the effectiveness of the pill. Sometimes Obgyns will direct patients to take birth control in alternative ways but always with guidance and counseling in an individualized way. If you skip pills then you can not rely on them for contraception
