How long had they been expired for? Believe it or not, many birth control pills (if stored in the right place, temperature. and it's original container) can actually still be good for at least 6 months after the expiration date printed. Of course, every medication loses it potency and effectiveness overtime-- for example, if you store it in heat, many meds can expire faster than if stored in a cool, dry, place.

Contacting Linessa, may not be a bad idea since only the manufacturer knows for sure how long after the exp. date the pills are good for.

I also wanted to pint out that your MAY have a stomach bug-- although bloating feeling, nausea and vomiting are common side effects of Linessa--diarrhea is not. You may want to check with your doctor about this, every body is different, so you never know unless you get checked out for your own health and safety and diarrhea will cause loss of fluids and electrolytes which need to be restored.

Good Luck.
