Not uncommon: Doubling up on ills gives twice the hormone dose and thus nausea more likely. Also missed pills can result in breakthrough bleeding and spotting. Some people are more sensitive to missed pills than others and your daughter will now know that she may brine of those people. Setting a cell phone alarm daily can help her remember.
