I take my pill at night. About midday today i had loose stools. not watery or anything. Would it still be safe to have unprotected sex later in the day?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
As long as you do not have vomiting within 3 hours of taking the pill, it should remain effective. And you should have the protection. You may consider having intercourse later in the day, but use protection to prevent infection inoculation into vagina, and also use protection if you have missed active pill intake or if you have not taken the pills at scheduled time daily. Be regular with your birth control use. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance.
Take care.
