What happens if my girlfriend misses her birth control one day and takes it the next time can we still have sex?

In brief: Use condom

If someone skips a pill, then doubles up the next day, there is still an increased risk for pregnancy.
It is best if one uses back up protection such as condoms for the remainder of the cycle.
