this is gross haha i'm sorry.
but i was wondering.. i took my pill at 10am today and at 11pm i had some mild diarhhea. i was having pretty bad diarrhea during my sugar pill week, but its gradually going away. would that lower the effectiveness of the bc? or would it have been absorbed into my system completely after 13 hours?

I don't think you have anything to worry about there. The pill would've been absorbed by then.

The only time you really have to worry is if you vomit within an hour or two of taking your pill. Other than that, you can be pretty sure you're safe (pregnancy-wise)

Yes, the pill would definitely be absorbed into your body before it would get to the point in your body that diarrhea would be an issue - it absorbs completely in your body within a couple of hours. The only time you need to be concerned with illness and the pill is if you were to vomit within a couple of hours of taking it. Otherwise, there's no reason for you to worry.

(Mindmeld!)
