I just have a question just to make sure.

I took my pill this morning (within a half hour)I spat up some phelm, I'm pretty sure there was no pill in it,

I'm just wondering if this count as 'vomiting'/ will reduce the effectivness of the pill? I ask because its in the last week of active pills and i remember seeing something about making sure those 7 were taken to ensure the next month is ok.

thankyou

You are probably alright. If you want to be extra careful, you can use a back up method such as condoms until you start the new pack (by then, you should be fine).

does the last 7 if not all taken affect the next pack?

Chances are, your pill was taken correctly.

And in general, if you have only missed one pill, you'll be fine by the beginning of the next cycle. If you missed more pills, then it would be an issue.
