Couple of days ago my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and he came inside me. That morning I took my pill at 7am and 5 and a half hours later I vomited and I hadn't eaten anything all day. So I'm worried that I vomited up the pill and worried that I could get pregnant from the unprotected sex we had the night before I vomited up the pill. Also only a couple of days ago I finished my sugar pills so I only just finished my period. Will I get pregnant???!! Help please

Hi Grace

I don't think it's likely at all that you are pregnant. As long as you are taking your pills as usual, you'll be fine. 

Throwing up after 5 hours is not cause of concern as your pill would be absorbed into your system by then. Concern is when throwing up can happen 1-2 hours after taking the pill. 

I don't think you have anything to worry about.
