I was eating and took my birth control and had to use the bathroom afterwards like 15 minutes after taking it does it make the pill less effective?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

What do you mean by "use the bathroom"? Did you urinate or have a bowel movement? Either way, this will not affect absorbtion in any way.
