... pill at its normal time 9am, had unprotected sex in the afternoon and later that night started having some stomach issues (cramps, diarrhea, etc.) For about an hour or so, I've never taken a late pill and took it as scheduled today as well, my question is am I still protected? I could be over thinking because I do tend to worry more than I should, better safe than sorry though right?! but I just wanted to ask to be sure so I know what to do now and also in the future if it happens again because I know in some cases it can lead to you not being protected any more but I also read stomach issues are a side effect so that triggered my confusion , thank you!
