I regularly take Ortho TriCyclen and have never missed a pill. This morning I woke up feeling nauseous due to a stomach bug that has been going around. I took my pill at my usual time of 11:30 and then about 2.5 hours later I got sick and threw up. This pill was third week, first active. I'm feeling better now and haven't gotten sick since. Should I take another pill from my backup pack today to cover or should I just continue on as normal and go to the next pill in the regular pack tomorrow?
I've looked online and haven't been able to find any definite information on how long the pill had to be in your system and right now I can't get in contact with a doctor/pharmacist since my area is experiencing very bad weather and many places have closed. Any information from you folks would be much appreciated.
