I take my pill at 9pm every night. Today at about noon I had some indigestion which I'm not sure counts as diarrhea. My pill insert says to use a backup until I can check with someone. What is Scarleteen's usual stance on this, am I ok since it's not severe and so long after I took the pill, or do I need backup?

Also, if it changes anything, I'm in my last week of active pills.

The only way you really need to worry about diarrhea is when you have a case of severe diarrhea within a few hours of taking the pill. Having some stomach problems the next day is not an issue.
