I had a case of soft stool 24 hours after I took my last pill. I woke up and my stomach was kinda weird, like there was pressurre so I went to use the bathroom! The stool was really easy to push out and they were coming out in little bits and pieces. They were all formed just kinda jagged pieces but no liquid or anything watery! I'm feeling fine but I'm wondering of this will affect my pill?

Our stool can be effected by all sorts of things, like diet, mood etc.

Diarrhea is not what you're describing... it's about uncontrolable, watery crapping. Last time I had it I was on the toilet for most of the day. It happens when our bowels are severely irritated usually by viral infection or bad food.

When it happens, it happens. It's often very obviously part of sickness. And unless that person was vomiting as well, I don't think it'd effect the absorption of oral medication, but the hormonal actions of their entire body would likely be a little out of whack.

So, luckily it sounds like you have neither disruption to your birth control nor diarrhea to worry about.
