I missed the first pill of my new pack of birth control pills but doubled up the next day. Would that be enough for ovulation to occur?

In brief: Possible

The worst pills to miss are those that extend the hormone free interval, thus possibly allowing ovulation to occur. Emergency contraception would be an option.
