Last night my normal contraceptive method failed and neither one of us noticed it until it was too late and it has me pretty worried. I understand that taking two plan b pills so close together will increase side effects, but will it also increase the effectiveness?
Will 2 plan b pills be more effective than one?

Actually the second pill will have less effect than the first so its not going to help and will make your side effects much worse. One pill is a huge blast of hormones.
No. Plan B is processed through the liver before it hits the bloodstream, so the same amount of usable hormone is released into your body no matter how many pills you take. The only thing taking 2 pills will do is clog up your liver and make you feel terrible for a longer amount of time.
