Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post! 

When you say you got sick, do you mean your threw up? 

If you took your pill yesterday and didn't throw up until early this morning then you should still be covered. Your body would have had time to absorb the hormones! You would have to vomit within two to three hours to make the pill ineffective. 

Did this answer your question?
