Customer Question
I currently am on Tri-Cyclin...
I currently am on Tri-Cyclin Lo. I was 2 hours late taking the third pill of my new pack, and I know the first week is one of the most important. I was also a few hours late taking one or two more pills at other time during my new pack. I have never gone 24 hours without taking a pill though. I also experienced some vomiting around the last days of the first week of my pill pack. Any sickness was well over two hours of taking my pills though. I threw up only once and minor diarrhea. Am I still protected? My last period was around the 15th of September and I started my new pack on the 21st of September if that helps.

I don't see a concern here at all.

2 hours difference is not a problem at all. Once daily is the prescription.

If you are on the pill regularly, you could even accidently skip a day, take the extra pill and be OK.

Hormones do not leave your system that quickly.

Being sick well after two hours after taking the pill, again, as long as you take it daily, is also not going to mess up your coverage.

I am sure your doctor will confirm this, but relax in the meantime.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. [This must be done manually]. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.

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.
