Well, it appears I now have a shomach virus. I know the pill is not causing it because i've been on it for four months no problem, and my boyfriend had the same thing wrong yesterday.

My question is, I took my pill (yasmin) at 8 this morning. I first vomited at 1:30 pm, and have done so 4 times since then.

I last had sex (with a condom) on tuesday and was planning to do so again tomorow, provided that I'm well. Do you think that my pill had a chance to absorb before I vomited? I really want to be under 2 forms of protection at all tims, so should I not have sex tomorow?

Thank You!

As long as there was a couple of hours between pill time and when you were sick (which there were), you should be fine. You're only really concerned about that if you are vomiting right after taking your pill...but after a couple of hours it's moved out of your stomach and into your system already. You've got nothing to worry about here.

Hope you're feeling better soon!

Thank you so much!

I just noticed all the errors in by post. I'm a very bad typist when nauseaus.
