Taking two pills in one night? (Microgynon 30) watch

    Hello friends!

    I am on Microgynon 30 right now, with today being the beginning of my new pack. I usually take my pill on the dot but tonight my phone froze as the alarm for my pill was happening and, pill in hand, I was flustered trying to sort it out. As I drank my water, I didn't feel the pill go down and I started to wonder whether or not I actually ingested my pill, as I was transfixed fixing my phone (stupid, I know). I'm wondering whether it fell out my hand somewhere or something, I don't know!

    I took another pill about 35 minutes later just in case.

    I was wondering whether this would compromise the efficacy of the pill and whether I should need protection for the next 7 days as I, possibly, took two pills tonight.

    Thank you!

    Taking two shouldn't effect the efficacy as that doesnt count as missing one.
