Ive been on birth...

Ive been on birth control for 3 weeks and i havent missed any days of taking it. but i was sick a couple days ago and missed my normal time to take it. i took it as soon as i remembered like they say to. then 3 days later still being a little sick i missed the normal time by an hr or so and took it right away. this morning i had a small amount of diarrhea and im worried the that pill may not have absorbed. i happend about 16 hrs after i took the pill. i also only have one more day of active pills before i start the start the sugar pill week

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
