Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

No, extra tablets will not decrease the effect of the pills but may delay your periods. Start the next pack as you normally do. Also since you took the missed pill within 24 hours, it will have its effect. If periods are delayed more than a week, then do a pregnancy test and see. Hope this helps. Take care!
