I take my oral contraceptive pill diligently at 10:00pm every night. Last week, my boyfriend and I had sex (Wednesday 9:00am) and we also used withdrawal method. For some reason, I decided to take a backup pill a few hours later.
Later that night, I vomited before taking my pill at the scheduled time of 10pm. This delayed me from taking my pill to about 12:30am, when I finally took it. I woke up again at 5:30am and vomited again.
Fearing that I would not be protected, I took another pill from my backup pack around 9:00 am that next morning.
My question is: I am really intent on preventing pregnancy- and I am wondering if the measures I took may prevent pregnancy? I am wondering if vomiting could have severely impacted the effectiveness of my pill. I am also wondering if all these steps are necessary as well. I am highly considering switching to implanon, and would like some feedback. Thank you.
