Double dose of Birth control pill

Hi,

Last night after intercourse, I noticed that I seem to have taken 2 pills of my birth control pill(Ovcon 35). However I am not sure when I took the double dose ( i.e. if it was taken yesterday or previously) or if I really did take a double dose!

And to make matters worse, despite being on the pill for over 1.5 yrs, my last cycle started before my pills ended i..e while I was on my active pills. I ignored the period and continued on my pills as usual.

I am worried about the effects of this on my fertility. Am I abusing my system too much? I plan to conceive after about a year...it will be my first and I am going to be 29.

Please advise...I am very concerned about this

You should be fine. The directions say you can take 2 at a time if you miss a dose, so it won't hurt you. You'll just run out of "active" pills one day sooner.

the pill should have no affect on future fertility. you will be fine.  just keep taking your pills everyday on time, finishing one day sooner. it shouldnt be a big deal at all. you dont need a backup method if you stick to the routine.
