So I've been kind of sick the last week or so. This is the last week of my pill pack before my placebo pills - I take Trinessa.

So I take my pill at 2pm everyday. I have thrown up a few times this week. But I've usually been throwing up late at night. Like around 11pm-2am. So does that affect my BCP at all?

Also During my second week in this pill pack I took the pill 1.5 hours late one day (I had sex on this day) and 3.5 hours late a few days before this.

Was I still protected in this case as well?? I used condoms whenever I had sex - I just want to make sure my BCP isn't compromised.

As long as you haven't been throwing up during a three or so hour window after you take your pill, you should still be protected.

Also, what you've described in terms of taking the pill late shouldn't matter, either.

Have you seen a doctor about being sick?
