I was wondering how long roughly it takes for a pill to be absorbed into the body. The other day I took my pill first thing in the morning at 7am as I do every day but was then sick around 10am. I didn't think anything of it until now when I wondered if that would have been time for it to be absorbed or should I count it as a missed pill?

Thanks!

The pill normally gets absorbed within 2 hours, so you are likely fine. If you want to be super careful, you can back up with condoms for the rest of this cycle.
