i have always been concerned of anything effecting my birth control. im taking sronyx and have been for quite a while. on the 17th (the 3rd pill in the 3rd week of this pack) of this month i had slight diarrhea an hour and a half after taking my was slight but im wondering if even though i didnt go to the restroom multiple times was that still enough to compromise the pills effectiveness??

That's not likely. Having slightly loose stools should not impact effectiveness.

Of course, if you're concerned about your pills giving you the level of protection from pregnancy you want, you can always choose to do dual contraception: using another method in addition to your pill, like condoms.
