In brief: Dose and birth contr

The most important thing will all birth control (also known as oral contraceptives) is that you consistently take them. Missing doses and taking medication with other medicine and foods (herbs) can affect the effectiveness of the birth control pills.
Please know pregnancies can occur even if everything is taken perfectly. Birth control is about 98% effective so there is a chance of pregnancy.
