Thanks for asking on the HealthReplies.com forum.
Birth control pills are one of the options for contraception which, if taken properly, can prevent pregnancy. Birth control pills consist of 28 pills, of which 21 contain hormones that function to prevent pregnancy, and 7 placebo pills that do not contain hormones. The description of the day written on the packaging is useful so that you don't forget to take the pill. In principle, as long as you're still taking pills that contain hormones (which generally have a day description on the packaging), even if the day you use is wrong or inappropriate, it means you're still taking hormone pills, not placebo pills, so the effect of preventing pregnancy is still working.
You can still continue to take the pill on the day it is written. If you forget to take 1 birth control pill, take it as soon as you remember it, and continue to take birth control pills the day according to your usual schedule/hour of taking it, even though it happens that on that day you take 2 birth control pills at different hours.
If you forget to take 2 birth control pills (2 days), take 1 pill immediately according to the schedule, and use a condom for the next 7 days if you have sex because the protective effect of the birth control pill has decreased.
