    Argh! This is it, I am SO getting the pill for real next week :rolleyes: Already organised the oppointment.

    3rd time unlucky

    Ok so on the w/e, we won't go into details (but mods I NEED to go anon, this is far too personal for me to go under my usual alias) but the next day I had work and I was panicking! I asked my boss if I could quickly rush into the nearest chemist to get MAP (they almost ripped me off too, luckily from experience I knew the price:p: I'm an older TSR member btw), but this is the official problem.

    I crunched on it. Crunched. And later that evening I swore I wouldn't do the same, but yet again. Later that night after my alarm went off, I guess I was drowsy and my back teeth broke the pill into tiny little pieces

    My question is: does this affect the absorption and effectiveness of MAP ???

    Thank you kindly, that is all.

    Have you read the accompanying instructions? Do they mention crunching on it or swallowing it whole?
    I would simply go to your pharmacist and ask. Or when you go for your appointment for the pill ask that question then. They're helath professionals who who can more sure than we are on this forum.
    Personally I would think it has worked but to be safe I would watch for your next period (When taking the pill you should start it on your period anyway) and if you want to make doubly sure because you are still worried, take a pregnancy test. I would think that the GP or Doctor would be able to inform you tho.

    I didn't know that about the pill, thanks for telling me

    Or maybe someone told me, and I forgot :/

    Yeh that's what the guy I'm seeing said, but then he would! Actually he's been pretty good and has been looking after me so no problems there, just the pill thing.

    Is really worrying me - don't wanna be parentals yet! :eek:

    You should be ok, even tho you crunched it up its still being swallowed and so going inside you. You could always nip down to a local boots/superdrug anywhere that has a pharmacy and ask there, it will at least put your mind at rest
