A 44-year-old member asked:
Could taking two of my triphasil (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) pills on the same day cause an overdose?

No: If you missed the dose the day before, it is actually recommended you take both with the next dose or as soon as you remember. The only side effect may be nausea with the increased dose. Missing dose repeatedly may lead to pregnancy or irregular bleeding.
