thought i posted this...but don't see it. if it is a repeat. i apologize. i missed taking my first pill of the second week of my pack of orthotricyclen lo. i take them when i get home from work--which will mean i will be taking two at a time. is that okay to do? will it protect me from pregnancy?

also, i left my pill pack in the bathroom for one evening by mistake (husband took a shower during this period). will one day being exposed to humidity affect the pill's efficacy?

one more question, a pharmacist once told me completely missing a pill (not making it up) in a month's cycle...will not effect the pill's efficacy. any truth to that?

As long as you take the missed pill as soon as you remember, you should be fine. No, one day being exposed to himidity will not affect the pill.
