Post New to the board and in need of advice...!

I am new to the board, and I am so glad to be able to post this question... I've been on Orthotryciclen for 3 years now, and so far I love it! However, this month at the beginning of my pack (white-active-pills) I had diarrea (yuck!) and as I read the information booklet, I found out that when one has diarrea the pill don't work as well! Even though, until this day my husband always pulls out, I am still worried since we did have interocurse twice... This week is time for my period to come. I am on my green-row of pills.. Do you guys think I should worry or should I just calmly wait for my period to come today or tomorrow... I appreciate your responses...

Just wait it out to see if your period comes. If it doesnt then take a test to see what the results are.

Thanks for your response... For now , I guess the best thing to do is wait and not stress about it... I am supposed to be getting my period tomorrow (4th green pill) or Thursday(5th green pill).. I am really trying to not worry about it... But, how bad is having diarrea affecting my BC pill?
