I was wondering how long it takes for birth control to get through your stomach, kind of. Yesterday I took mine at 7:15, and later in the night, around 1 or so, I threw up.

It was my last pill in the pack. My boyfriend and I had sex today but used a condom just in case.. should I worry about using backup methods during this withdrawal week or during my next pack? Thanks!

That sounds like a sufficiently long time for the pill to have dissolved and been absorped. When the packs say getting sick after taking your pill, it's more concered with the next two or three hours.
