IS my birth control still effective?

Sometimes when I take my birth control pill, it feels like it gets stuck in my throats and stays there for a while. Does this make it less effective of ineffective?

Hi, yayajls.

Thank you for posting.

No. It eventually softens and will go down. Try having the pill soften (melt) on your tongue - then wash it down with water. So it won't stick in your throat or give you the feeling it's stuck.
