Hi, if you take two sugar pills in one night by accident what will happen? Will your period come on more quickly?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sugar pills in the birth control pill pack also known as placebo pills do not contain any hormones. They usually contain iron supplements. If you take more than 1 pill a day (sugar pills, and not active pills), there will be no changes. You will get your withdrawal bleeding/period at the usual time. Be regular in taking the pills at scheduled time daily to remain protected. If you miss taking your birth control pills, follow the missed pill protocol. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further discussion and clarifications.
Take care.
