    I know if you're sick within 2 hours of taking a contraceptive pill it doesn't have time to absorb so you're unprotected, but if i took one, then little over 24 hours later I was sick 3 times, had sex, then took a pill, am I still protected? Is the first pill I took 24 hours previous still protecting me?
    Desperate for advice please reply!!

    If it's your very first pill ever then no, you're not protected. But if you threw up over a day after taking it you should be fine.

    I'd say you're protected, since you threw up a long time after taking the first pill.

    you are still protected as it takes a few hours to enter your system. If you threw up within 2 hours of taking the pill, then you would have to take another one (the following days should resume as normal). If u had sex 12 hours after a missed dose, see a family planning clinic or go to a pharmacy for a morning after pill (be warned with morning after pill as there is a chance it will abort zygotes if fertilisation occured, so if your pro-life, then it can be complicated). also avoid antacids as it will reduce effect of pill, likewise herbal medication
