Throwing up after taking pill

last friday, I forgot to take my 2nd to the last pill of the month.So, on saturday I planned to take 2 pills, 1 in the morning, 1 at night. Well, I ended up taking the 1st pill around 5pm because i forgot, then i get drunk around 11:30pm, have unprotected sex around 1am (my boyfriend usually can't cum in me but i'm guessing he just pre-cums), then took my 2nd pill around 2am then i wake up in the middle of the night(4am) and i throw up.


I am very very very worried that I threw up my pill which has made me vulnerable to pregnancy. will i be ok???

When you say "last pill of the month," do you mean placebo pills or pills right before your pill-free or placebo week?

It is probably unknown whether your pill got absorbed or not. Either way, though, it just means your pill-free week got extended to 8 days instead of 7 (to the best of my understanding).

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9704763 ?dopt=Abstract

This link is a study that proved that women whose pill free week was extended to 10 days still did not experience ovulation in those days. So, based on this study, an 8 day break instead of a 7 day break probably would not result in ovulation. And, since your pill could well have been absorbed, you may not have anything to worry about.

Use back-up for 7 days into your new pack, just in case, and then your protection will for sure be back to normal.
Although I doubt you have anything to worry about as far as pregnancy goes, taking a test could give you reassurance.
Good luck!
