After having gallbladder problems for the past year and a half, I finally decided to have it removed on Sep. 27th. The procedure went fine, and I've doing great now. The day of the procedure and the day after it, I could not keep food or pills or anything down. So, I threw up one of my bc pills one day, and I threw up another one the day after... So, I missed two pills within the first week of a pack.

After those two days, everything went back to normal and I was keeping things down fine, and taking my bc pills as I usually do. I have been on them since March, and I've barely been late on any of them and I have never missed any of my pills until now.

I'm still taking the pack that I missed the pills in, and while doing so, my boyfriend and I are abstaining from sex just to be on the safe side. After I get done with this pack, and start on the new one, should I consider myself protected again?

Hi There,

Yes, as long as you start the new pack on time, whatever happened with the last pack doesn't count.
