Threw up birth control pill, but took another to make up for it.

I took my birth control pill on Saturday, but threw up less than thirty minutes after. However, I took another pill to make up for this lost pill. So my pill pack is now a pill shorter, but I am planning to just start my next pill pack a day earlier. Am I still safe? Thanks!

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Anytime you miss a pill your chances for pregnancy are higher.  You should be safe, but if you plan on skipping any pills. You should use another form of protection, such as condoms.
