I accidentally took 2 birth control pills today. I wanted to take my allergy medication, but instead too my Yaz. Will this reduce the effectiveness or cause me to ovulate?

It won't reduce the effectiveness, no. You just need to keep in mind that you'll now be one pill short at the end of the pack, so you'll need to find a way to make that up somehow.

Ok thanks! So this extra pill won't make my estrogen levels higher and cause me to ovulate?

No. Ovulation happens with a specific combination of hormone levels, and one extra pill will not make a difference.
