vomiting and the pill

Okay I usually take my pill everyday at 10:30am, Saturday night I was drinking a little and in the morning (sunday) around 8:30am I vomited I didn't end up taking my next pill till 3pm, a little late and later that night had sex with my BF....anyone think this will effect me? Should I take plan B?

Re: vomiting and the pill

i'm not sure. i think they say to take it in a 3 hour window...that was 4 & 1/2 hours. i would say to use back-up for 7 days but since you already had sex, i dont know. i'm not an expert on the pill...wish i could be of more help. if you're really worried then i guess it couldnt hurt to go the plan b route. it might also depend on how far along in your cycle you are but i'm not sure. i bet someone else will post a better answer for you...good luck!

Re: vomiting and the pill

Check your pill packet for information, but with MOST combined birth control pills (containing ethinyl estradiol and a progestin) a pill is not considered "missed" until it is twelve hours late. Also, with most combined pills, missing one pill does not require the use of back-up.

Check what the info for your particular pill says, but you are more then likely perfectly fine, and do not require the use of back-up, and therefore do not require Plan B.
