Hey there!
I just have a question about throwing up after taking birth control. On the tenth day of a new pack (I've been on tricyclen lo for three months) I took my birth control pill at the same time as normal. I then felt awful half an hour later and threw up the pill. I still felt pretty sick but thought it would be best to take the 11th day pill as to not be late and then go to bed and sleep the sickness off. Little did I know it was a bad case of food poisoning that was making me vomit, and I ended up vomiting the 11th pill as well.
So I took the 10th and 11th pill on the same day and vomited them both before either of them could have absorbed into my system.
24 hours later I took the 12th and 13th day pill to make up for the night before and the current nights pill. I felt fine and it kept down. I would've taken the 10th and 11th pill from a different pack if I was at home, but I'm in Mexico so that's a bit of a far reach haha (I live in Canada.) I return tomorrow night.
What would be the risk of pregnancy if I have sex tomorrow night with my boyfriend?
Thanks a bunch!

I'd simply back up with a reliable second method for the rest of your cycle, or at the very least, for the next seven days.
